Emma de Sousa has announced she will be stepping down from her role as president of Insight’s EMEA business, effective 31 December 2022. 

From 2 January 2023, Atos executive Adrian Gregory will take the reins of the solutions integrator’s EMEA business, with de Sousa to assist with the leadership transition until her exit.

Commenting on her departure after nearly 20 years at the company, de Sousa said the decision was not an easy one. 

“It was a very difficult decision to make, but it has been a privilege to be part of this wonderful organisation that continually strives for greatness and lives by its core values of hunger, heart and harmony,” she said. 

The outbound executive took the role of EMEA president back in January 2021, having previously held leadership positions in the reseller giant’s UK and EMEA marketing division since 2017. 

Back in 2016, it was revealed that de Sousa was to step down from her then-role as UK Managing Director to join cloud Manchester-based services provider Outsourcery. However, a combination of business opportunities and personal circumstances saw her U-turn on that decision.

Her EMEA replacement Adrian Gregory joins the company from digital transformation and consulting multinational Atos, where he has held various leadership roles over the last decade, including CEO of its Northern Europe and APAC business.

“We have enormous respect for the decision that Emma has made, and we fully support her,” commented Insight CEO Joyce Mullen. “We thank her for her phenomenal leadership and many years of success leading the UK and our EMEA business. 

“Widely respected both with the industry and Insight, I’d also like to pay tribute to Emma’s enduring commitment to building a high performance, highly inclusive culture at Insight. We have taken this opportunity to look carefully at the market and have found a terrific successor in Adrian.”
