Scott Fletcher MBE
Founder of the ANS Group at just 22 years old, Scott has developed the business into one of the UK’s leading managed services and cloud providers with a turnover of £60 million.
Dedicated to providing faster computing solutions to their clients, ANS is an award-winning data centre, and expert in designing, delivering and managing IT services that help businesses increase productivity.
Aside from growing ANS, Scott ensures that his business plays a wider role in local society, focusing particularly on younger members of the community. Youth employment and training are causes particularly close to his heart as Scott views education as critical to young people’s success.
As a result, he founded the ANS Cloud Academy in 2013. The academy is a 12-month apprenticeship programme aimed at closing the skills gap within the IT sector, which supports young people as they develop a career within the industry. ANS has also worked closely with its partner charity, the Factory Youth Zone, to provide a centre for Manchester’s deprived youth to raise their aspirations.
In Manchester, Scott is an active member of the business community, sitting on the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership. He is a serial investor in small companies and in 2014 was made an MBE for services to business and the community.
