Scott Vontobel has been with GDS since February 2009 and has been instrumental in setting-up GDS's USA office and sales network. Scott feels that he is unable to give all that is required to the position at this time and has decided to move on.

Scott commented: -

“I have decided that now is the right time for me to spend more time with my young family and I am planning to find my next opportunity closer to home. I felt it would be best for the company to find someone who can devote more time to developing the USA operations and moving the company forward. Global Design Solutions is a great company with innovative products, I wish Matt and Richard every success for the future, they are a fantastic bunch guys with great products and values”.

Matt Lloyd, MD and Richard Cuthbert Technical Director commented:

“We wish Scott and his family the best, we know he will succeed in whatever he decides to do”.
