What Ross loves about RED

“When the opportunity to lead such a recognised SAP and consultative technology recruitment organisation presented itself, it was one that I couldn’t pass up. The enormous potential of RED – the global SAP recruiter – is one of the primary reasons for joining as CEO. Combining my expertise in technology recruitment with the support of the talented management team, we are driving an already respected business into its newest phase of expansion to achieve fundamental growth.”
