Following a recent management restructure and the ongoing establishment of important new areas of business, Bristol, U.K.-based LED lighting company GDS has appointed Charlotte Fenwick to the position of Marketing Manager and Katie Dyer to the role of Business Development Executive. Fenwick brings growth-marketing experience from the property development and engineering sector; Dyer has a strong sales background, developed from her experience in the IT industry.
“These are very exciting times at GDS,” notes Managing Director Richard Cuthbert. “We’re moving forward on a number of new fronts, so it’s essential that we keep pace with progress as we continue to expand the business. Charlotte’s appreciation of engineering and technology and her previous work in taking forward projects in the architectural field makes her a great fit for our principal marketing role. Katie’s proven sales skills will support our recently created on-site service operation, as well as reinforcing the wider GDS team as we open up new channels. Both are very capable, committed, and energetic individuals who will be instrumental in helping to shape our future.”
Fenwick comments, “In my career to date, I’ve developed a real passion for the technical side of architecture and engineering. Whilst GDS is more embedded in a specific area of technology, I’m confident that my marketing knowledge and skills will transfer effectively and I’m looking forward to helping the company grow its new products and services. This is a new chapter for GDS and one that I’m delighted to be helping to write.”
Dyer adds, “I’ve worked successfully in both field and tele sales within large organizations in the IT sector for a number of years. The chance to take on the challenge of representing a market-leading technology company as it embarks on a period of diversification and growth was too good to miss.”
