Meet our CEO

"Basefarm has an amazing team with an incredible commitment to its customers. 

The industry for managed services as a whole is undergoing an exciting development, with growing demand for Basefarm’s hybrid cloud services which includes both public and private cloud, and the complexity of security and compliance around the same. 

In 2018 Basefarm became part of the Orange group, who is already a major player in the cloud services business. Together we’re able to build a pan-European leader in cloud managed services, something which will benefit Basefarm and our customers."
