"I would like to thank Karen for her tireless dedication to Softcat these past three years. She has made a significant contribution to Softcat's growth and development during her tenure, through her counsel, perspective and active participation in our growth plans. On a personal note, I would like to add that Karen is one of the best board members I have ever worked with and she has been an absolute pleasure to have on the Softcat Board."
