Vpod appoint new Sales Director
Vpod are delighted to announce the appointment of new Sales Director, Simon Blissett.
With over 30 years of experience in the finance industry, Simon brings with him a strong track record of commercial success as well as his enthusiasm for the opportunities afforded by new thinking in digital technologies.
Throughout his career he has been instrumental in transforming customer experience — using technology to deliver increased growth and profitability across multiple channels.
“I am very pleased to be working with Vpod - they have a wealth of experience using technology to transform customer journeys - ensuring the right process for maintaining trust and relationships. This is a real passion of mine in an age where many companies have lost sight of the value of providing assisted self-service and human advice in their digital journeys. With a growing client base and a real focus on agile development, this is a great time to be joining Vpod” – Simon Blissett
“We are excited to have Simon onboard, he has a wealth of experience within financial services and brings a unique business understanding that will benefit many of our customers – 2019 is set to be a promising year” – Sam Farrant – MD
