The purpose of this new strategy is to provide more specialised and vertically differentiated products and services, ultimately creating a greater experience and delivering more value to every end-user.
Speaking on his role, Steve said, “The three cornerstones of my career have always been technology, software, and leadership. My aim at Totalmobile is to not only bolster its reputation in the field service management sector, but to help inspire my colleagues’ personal and professional development. As I start my new job, my key focus will be to gain a deep, specialised understanding of the environment Totalmobile operates in, so I can mould my role to better address the challenges facing Totalmobile’s customers and end-users”.
Alongside Steve’s appointment, Totalmobile has also announced that Ray Rees has been hired as Head of Sales.
