Wow, what a year so far! With our growth trajectory steepening we’ve been out recruiting again. Our latest recruit joins us on April 1st, but he’s no fool, especially when it comes to the IT security market. His name is Nick Smith and his position is sales manager.
Joining us from a similar position at Bosch Security Systems, having done previous in both sales and IT support roles at SISYS, Dorset Police and Dorset County Council, we’d have struggled to find a better fit and hope you’ll join us in welcoming Nick to the business.
Enough from us though: we thought we’d throw a Q&A at Nick so he can answer for himself the sort of questions we think you’d be interested in asking yourself. Read more >>
When we heard that icomply customer, Mark Babington (Safer Travel Manager for Centro, the organisation responsible for the delivery of public transport in the West Midlands) planned to cycle, with two friends, from the northern most point (Malin Head) to the southern most point (Mizen Head) of Ireland, our immediate calculations turned to ‘amount of Guinness likely to be consumed.’ Upon learning more though, we decided that Mark’s quest deserved to be shared with our network; along with this call to action:
“PLEASE GET GIVING ….”
Why? Well, because Mark and his team have accepted this challenge, taking 6 days to cycle 427 miles, with some days being as long as 84 miles, in order to raise much needed funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care (although, they admit that it is not out of the question that some Guinness will be consumed along the way, as, apparently, “it’s good for you”).
