Content+Cloud appoints former Softcat MD Colin Brown as non-executive director
London – 11th May 2022 – Content+Cloud today announced the appointment of Colin Brown who joins the company as non-executive director.
A veteran in IT services, Colin brings more than two decades of senior leadership experience and expertise to his role and will advise on Content+Cloud’s growth roadmap.
Prior to joining Content+Cloud’s board of directors, Colin was the managing director at Softcat plc, one of the UK’s leading IT infrastructure providers.

After stepping down as Softcat’s managing director in 2020, Colin assisted with the transition to a new leadership team. Following his departure, he now acts as a non-executive director for a number of technology and services organisations, creating strong cultures through high employee engagement and clear strategic direction.
Peter Sweetbaum, CEO, Content+Cloud, said: “We are delighted to have Colin on board where we look forward to him bringing his exemplary experience at the core of the UK IT Services market in the UK and Europe.

On his appointment, Colin said: “I’m delighted to have joined Content+Cloud as a non-exec director. I have been so impressed with the fantastic growth that Peter and his leadership team have achieved over the last few years, and what’s even more exciting is the best is yet to come.
“Content+Cloud is ideally placed to assist organisations, seeking to harness and benefit from technology, through a combination of their best-in-class customer service and a very smart investment record. I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
