“The company is on a positive growth trajectory and very well-positioned to continue building on its strong momentum,” said Bowen.

“MDS Global has talented people and we will capture the next wave of growth by remaining focused on serving our clients, delivering innovation in our solutions and providing the best career experiences for our people.”

“I am pleased that I leave the company in good shape, with a strong balance sheet and with an accomplished management team that can now further expand the business and continue to grow its value over the coming years.”
