VMob extends global sales efforts

VMob extends global sales efforts

Top Australian and UK talent join the ranks

With the addition of key accounts across Europe including McDonald’s and Exxon, VMob (VML-NZX) is experiencing strong customer growth in the last 12 months and adding top tier talent in Australia and the UK to meet demand.

The company extended its APAC operation last year with the opening of a new Singapore office. Now continuing its growth plan in the region, Jim Castles has been appointed as Australian National Sales Manager, based in the VMob Sydney office.

Mr Castles comes to VMob with over 15 years’ experience in sales in the Australian media and advertising industry and his extensive network is already forging connections between VMob and some of Australia’s leading brands.

Recognising the growing opportunity in the European market, VMob will also soon be opening a London based office headed up by newly appointed UK Business Development Manager, Ben Damshenas.

Damshenas has over 10 year’s sales experience in the UK, specialising in the digital industry. His consultative sales approach means that he has built strong relationships within the UK and makes him very adept at selling innovative solutions like VMob to any level across multiple verticals.

Looking forward, the company is working to capitalise on current momentum by putting additional staff on the ground in several key markets said VMob CEO and founder Scott Bradley.

“We have some huge advantages in building a business based in New Zealand. We’ve built a strong leadership team as well as development and customer support resources. However, you must never underestimate the importance of feet on the ground and experience in overseas markets when running an export business”

“We’ve proven the software, we know it works, we know we can generate truly outstanding results for our clients and deliver significant ROI in a very short time. Now we need to take that story out to more clients.”

Effectively extending sales teams across the globe is a challenging step that many New Zealand businesses have struggled with. Fortunately, it’s a challenge that VMob founder and CEO Scott Bradley and many of the company’s executive members know well.

Armed with the experience of successfully growing businesses on a global scale, VMob have initially worked remotely and travelled to be on the ground in their European and APAC markets. Now, knowing the market has been proven in these areas with strong initial sales they are making a significant commitment to boost that growth.
