ADS Beacon Awards: Resilience is the name

Category :


Everyone at Atlantic DataSystems is delighted to introduce our next group of remarkable clients, who have each shown profound perseverance and an ability to always succeed.

What is resilience?

There is perhaps no better descriptor of Atlantic Canadians than resilient. We are not strangers to adversity in any form.

For VP Derek Sullivan, it has a special meaning: “For our clients, resilience means rising to the occasion and overcoming any moment of difficulty. In these moments, our clients have maintained operations and protected employees, customers, and stakeholders — they’ve truly wowed us. It’s their strong ability to plan and strategize that has ensured their success for the future.”
