SINGAPORE/SYDNEY/TORONTO, April 2, 2018 – Sourced Group (Sourced), a leading IT consulting firm specialising in large-scale cloud transformations for enterprise clients, is pleased to announce a new organisational structure aimed at better serving its worldwide customer base.

Originally based in Australia and Canada, the company expanded its presence into the Singapore market in July 2017 with a dedicated executive and delivery team that has gone on to engage with leading local enterprises in the financial services and aviation industries. Today the company also announces the further expansion of its Singapore office to meet the needs of its growing base of Southeast Asian clients.

Founded in 2010, Sourced provides professional, project and managed services for securing, migrating and managing the cloud infrastructure of Fortune 500 clients in financial services, aviation, healthcare and other regulated industries.

With the company planning to continue to align itself directly to clients’ key operational regions, Sourced recently completed a global strategic roadmap to ensure it positions itself effectively to deliver world-class services to its global clients, and their communities. As a result of the review, the company is announcing the following appointments, effective immediately:
