Bidding to create more jobs in Scotland
Provista UK recruits head of sales
Provost UK, a Hamilton tech firm recently acquired by a Nasdaq listed tech giant, has appointed Jim Mooney (pictured) in the role of head of sales and marketing.
Mr Mooney brings close to 20 years of experience in the technology sector working for global leaders including Fujitsu and GE Capital as well Scottish software vendor Axios Systems. Most recently, Mr Mooney co-founded Glasgow-based online retailer Houseology with his wife and business partner, helping it expand to a £5m turnover business prior to his exit.
He will now be responsible for leading the company’s sales and marketing team and playing a key role in implementing the next phase of growth at the Cisco Gold Partner business.
Speaking following his appointment, Mr Mooney said: “There could hardly have been a more positive time to join the business – with the recent takeover putting us on the cusp of major growth.”
Stuart Little, director with Provista UK, said: “Jim’s track record goes before him, however for us it was as much to do with his entrepreneurial outlook. He took the leap to start up and build a successful business of his own – and that experience counts for so much.
“Takeovers sometimes result in consolidation, however what is particularly exciting and important about our situation is that no jobs are being lost and instead we are already bidding to expand and create more skilled jobs – in Scotland and the wider UK.”
