It is great to welcome Kettering to the Atturra business. Kettering is a great fit both strategically and culturally. Atturra is passionate about building sovereign capabilities and ensuring that our clients, whether they are in the public or private sector, have a genuine local option.

Throughout the process we felt safe in both your calm and professional approach. We appreciated the communication throughout and the confidence that it would work out well – and it has.” Rob and Katie Cheesman, Kettering Professional Services.
