“Nick, Dave Seaton and the whole team at Morphose have added value during every step in the process. Morphose took the time to thoroughly understand the cultural values of Borland and the rationale behind my objectives for Borland’s future. Whilst I was in the privileged position of having a significant amount of interest in Borland, AssuredPartners were quickly identified as being the right fit. I am delighted to be partnering with AssuredPartners and assisting with the growth of the UK Regional business.”
Morphose Managing Director Nick Atherton commented;
