ANS  Group,  the Manchester based technology infrastructure specialist,  are pleased  to  announce
that Andy Barrow has been appointed as their new Technical Director with immediate effect.

Andy  has been promoted from his role as head of technical pre-sales where he was responsible  for
overseeing  the  architecture and implementation of solutions for clients. His new  position  will
allow  him  to  identify new opportunities for ANS Group to capitalise on, and drive  the  current
business plan forward.

Andy  is  CCIE  certified in Security for Cisco and has been with ANS Group since it acquired  the
Cisco  partner,  BIOS, four years ago. Andy is not a Director nor has he been a  Director  of  any
other Company in the last 5 years.

Andy commented: "Having worked in the industry for the last eight years, this promotion will allow
me  to show my commitment to the company and help push the current strategy and vision forward. It
has  been  an  exciting year for ANS with the successful launch of Infrastructure 3.0,  and  I  am
delighted that my hard work has been recognised and rewarded in such a way."

Paul  Sweeney, MD of ANS Group commented: "Andy has demonstrated that he will be a fantastic asset
to  the  board. His recent work on our new offering, Infrastructure 3.0, turned the vision into  a
reality, and myself and the board look forward to working with him more closely in the future."

Andy  is  interested in a total of 4,630 ordinary shares in ANS Group.  He also has the  following
options: 50,000 options exercisable at 87.5p between 31/08/2011 and 31/08/2012 and 100,000 options
