Welcoming the latest members to the UpriseVSI team
We’re delighted to officially welcome three new members of staff into the ranks of UpriseVSI, a reflection of recent new project wins, and the increasing demand for thinkBooker, the Best Emerging Talent Technology winning online booking software.
Our new Account Manager Michaela, joins us following a successful career as a Digital Project Manager with a major web agency in London, for whom she managed a number of significant projects for high profile clients such as the British Heart Foundation, Sheffield Hallam University and ACI Worldwide,
An experienced project manager, Michaela has also held project management roles within a local Cardiff creative agency as well as a Bristol based PR agency. She will be responsible for planning and delivering client projects and for managing UpriseVSI’s multi-disciplinary teams. She will also play a key role in building and maintaining client relationships.
David has joined the team to fill the position of Digital Marketing Manager, and will be working with UpriseVSI clients to develop and implement digital marketing strategies for search engine optimisation (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC), and social media. In addition, he’ll also be helping in the development of digital strategies for thinkBooker, and the promotion of the UpriseVSI suite of services.
David previously worked for Restore Datashred (formerly PHS) a public listed company for whom he managed the online marketing within the data shredding division. His experience of working on the client side is complemented by significant agency experience, having previously worked in online marketing roles for two Cardiff-based digital agencies.
Greek-born Ilias is a new addition to our web development team, taking on the role of Frontend Developer. Having graduated from Aberystwyth University with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Business Information Technology, Ilias has comes to UpriseVSI following six years in the web development industry, where he’s developed iOS applications and worked on a range of web projects for major brands.
On the new appointments, UpriseVSI MD, Gareth Rees Jones, has said: “I’m delighted to welcome Michaela, David and Ilias to the team. Since our acquisition of VSI in October 2015, we have focused heavily on developing and marketing our own technology solutions. In order to do that effectively, it’s vital that we have the right team of people in place to help us take the business forward and to deliver world-class solution for our clients.
“In particular, we’re focusing on the development and promotion of thinkBooker, our online booking solution that recently won Best Emerging Technology at the Wales Online Digital Awards. The addition of the three new team members will, I’m sure, help us to move that forward significantly, allowing us to continue to capitalise on the demand for that product.”
