Activ Technology has announced the appointment of Wes Clough who joins the team to handle the marketing and communication function of the business.
Wes, from Wallsend, joins with over 16 years’ experience as a brand marketer and graphic designer.
His arrival is the first of what is expected to be a number of appointments, as the company bolsters its business development and administrative teams.
Despite the ongoing pandemic, Activ Technology has also recently achieved Silver Partner Status with global market leader in enterprise communications, Mitel and has become a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner.
Wes said: “I have a long-standing relationship with Ian Gillespie, managing director at Activ Technology, as I began my professional career working for him at Fone Logistics many years ago. When the opportunity arose for me to work with him again, I jumped at it.
“Since my early days with Ian, I have built up great expertise in marketing and design working for a number of well-known brands such as DFDS, Dawson & Sanderson and, most recently, as head of creative at a design agency based in Durham.
“My role will primarily focus on e-mail marketing and supporting the sales team as well as creative design and brand management. However, my first major task has been the design and build of the new Activ Technology website.”
Managing director at Activ Technology, Ian Gillespie, said: “We warmly welcome Wes to the team and I have no doubt that his creative marketing skills will greatly enhance our customer offering. “Despite being in the midst of a global pandemic, our customers remain our top priority and as well as a raft of new appointments that we will announce in the coming months, our Silver Partner Status with Mitel and becoming a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner is down to the exceptional level of sales, technical training and business engagement delivered in record time. We look forward to building on our relationship with Mitel and Microsoft and offering the best support to our loyal customers.”
