A fond farewell to Aaron Bhashkar
After more than 20 years at Soft Solutions, Aaron Bhashkar has decided to move on. Aaron has been with SofSol since 1997 and in that time has held a variety of positions – from working on our sales team, being the first point of contact for our Tier one partners and helping to grow our VoIP portfolio to where it is today. He will be deeply missed by all of us here at Soft Solutions and we wish him all the best as he heads off to the Bay of Plenty. Farewell Aaron!!!
