Rob Davies, sales and marketing director, Pulsant, said: “Chris has a highly impressive track record, he is well-versed in operating from board level down with a strong customer-focused, profit-driven approach.

This strategic appointment really underlines our ongoing commitment to developing and expanding our partner programme. We have already seen unprecedented growth in the programme during the last 12 months, in terms of both revenue and new partners, and we look forward to its continued success.”
