Scott is one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and was awarded an MBE for services to business and the community in the North West of England in 2014 and was recently awarded an honoury doctorate by Manchester Metropolitan University this year.
While he now heads up companies with a total valuation in excess of £250m, he founded what is now his largest business, ANS, when he was just 22 years old. Since its creation in 1996, ANS has grown to become the #1 Cloud Services Provider in the UK, with nearly 300 employees and a run rate EBITDA approaching £15m.
Scott is a widely known figure in the Manchester community thanks to his active charitable involvement, passion for Apprenticeships and his participation on the Greater Manchester LEP. His outspoken views on politics, IT and business have made him a respected voice in the media and somebody who isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo.
