Sage appoints Paul Struthers to help guide UK and Ireland’s SMEs into a technology-led recovery

London, UK, August 13: Sage, the market leader in cloud business management solutions, today announced the appointment of Paul Struthers as EVP and Managing Director, UK & Ireland.

Paul previously led Sage’s global Medium Segment team and before that was the Managing Director of the company’s Canadian business. He has more than 20 years of technology leadership experience at Sage, Amdocs and RSA and will be moving to the UK from his native Toronto as he joins the UK and Ireland team at the beginning of October.

Paul takes the helm of Sage’s 2000 strong UK and Ireland team from Sabby Gill, who is leaving the company to take on a new role. He joins at a critical juncture for the global economy and for Sage’s customers. Millions of businesses across the country are embracing cloud technology to improve productivity, gain insight that helps them make the right decisions and build business resilience.

“Sage has supported businesses with world class technology for nearly 40 years,” comments Lee Perkins, Chief Operating Officer, Sage.

“Now, more than ever, we have a responsibility to help small and medium sized businesses across the UK and Ireland with the right solutions and the right advice, to help the nation adjust to the new normal. 

“Paul has a fantastic track record of helping our customers, colleagues and partners succeed. As we embark on our new financial year, I know he will help us on our mission to become a great SaaS company in our home market.”

Paul Struthers said: “Over the past couple of years, under Sabby’s leadership, the UK and Ireland business has gone from strength to strength. The team has attracted new customers, built strong and enduring subscription relationships with existing customers and made Sage a great place to work. As we move into a new era for our business, our technology and our industry, it’s a privilege to be a part of the journey.”
