ASL Group, leading managed-office services supplier, is strengthening its senior management team with the appointment of Duncan Forsyth as it chief financial officer.

Duncan, previously the Group Managing Director at Westcoast, an established IT logistics and services business, brings with him experience of being part of a team that has taken a company from a £35 million-pound turnover to a £3 billion-pound turnover. During his time at Westcoast he developed extensive relationships across the technology industry.

Duncan Forsyth said, “As a supplier to ASL, I’ve observed the senior management team’s approach, and success. I can see the opportunity for ASL to further expand its great position as one of the leading independent managed service providers in the UK.

Mark Garius, Managing Director of ASL commented on the appointment, “We’ve acquired three businesses in the last 12 months as well as securing investment from Primary, and we are keen to continue to grow ASL. It’s important for us to maintain our high level of operations and service and the appointment of a new chief financial officer enables us to do this.

“Duncan’s cross technology and business experience will help support the existing team and open new product and service propositions for our customers. I am looking forward to working with Duncan and utilising his expertise and relationships to help to continue to grow the business both organically and through further acquisitions

ASL Group made its thirteenth business acquisition at the end of 2019 and has expanded its reach beyond providing managed print services (MPS) to embrace unified communications, software, IT, Commercial and Industrial Print solutions for its 6,000 national customers.
