Another week with people embarking on fresh chapters in their careers across the industry

It’s been another week with lots of movement across the industry. The motivation, as always, remains to bring in talent and expertise to support growth ambitions. Firms across different parts of the industry have reached out to experienced personnel in the hope that they will make a positive difference.


The managed service provider (MSP) is now selling through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme, which gives it access to a licensing model that enables the firm to provide direct billing and the chance to directly provision, manage and support products and services.

At the same time, the firm welcomes a new chairman at CSI in the form of Mark Fowle, who is a veteran of the IT industry, with CEO experience at Attenda – a business he built over nearly 20 years before it was sold to Ensono. Since then, he has been a board member of Ensono and MC Ventures, and chairman of Converged Technology Specialist.


Like a Premier League manager wanting to make a real difference, the software developer has chosen to introduce several pairs of fresh legs at once, recruiting four sales experts to join its team.

Paul Brazier joins as a senior account manager, having previously spent over 14 years at Mitel in the same role.

Craig Jones and Christian Hughes join as Tollring’s new account managers. Craig has more than 20 years of experience, having worked for some of the UK’s leading telecoms and service providers including the Nycomm Group. Christian is an experienced sales professional who has worked at IT services consultant at Enreach.

Finally, Darren Rowley has been appointed as partner onboarding for Analytics 365. He  has plenty of experience, including time at Mitel, where he held the role of UK master agent channel programme manager and cloud onboarding manager.

“We are delighted to welcome such talented sales professionals as we look to accelerate the company’s growth. The expansion of the team allows us to dedicate more time to understanding our partners, developing those relationships and expanding our support for them across Tollring’s entire portfolio,” said Andy Bannister, global head of sales at Tollring.

MDX Technology

The trader collaboration specialist has decided that Nigel Someck is the right candidate to make the difference as global vice-president of sales. He joins from Livingstone Technologies, where he was the commercial head of the managed services team. His CV includes time in leadership roles in several fintech firms, including Sungard (now FIS) and Imagine Software.

“I am delighted to welcome Nigel to the MDXT family, where he is already making a material difference. His experience and insights from working across financial technology and the wider enterprise tech arena brings a refreshing new perspective to our business,” said Paul Watmough, CEO at MDXT.

“Alongside our recent investment, his enthusiasm, and an ever-increasing volume of inbound new business enquiries globally, I am confident that MDXT is ideally positioned to exploit the many opportunities coming our way,” he added.

Publicis Sapient

The digital transformation player has appointed former Deloitte staffer Abby Godde as chief experience officer. Her brief covers responsibility for setting the vision for how customer, user and employee experiences contribute to the way the firm meets its digital business transformation ambitions.

“Abby is an extraordinary design, innovation and strategic global leader. She combines her deep background in Silicon Valley, consulting and corporate management with expertise in leveraging technology, design and research to create powerful products, services and experiences,” said Publicis Sapient CEO Nigel Vaz.
