GDS Expands Business Team

Charlotte Fenwick and Katie Dyer

Specialist Bristol-based LED lighting manufacturer, GDS, has recruited two new key members of staff following a recent management restructure.

The company welcomes Charlotte Fenwick to the position of Marketing Manager and Katie Dyer to the role of Business Development Executive. Charlotte brings experience of growth-marketing from the property development and engineering sector, whilst Katie has a strong sales background, developed across the IT industry.

Managing Director Richard Cuthbert is looking forward to working with the new recruits, he explained: “These are very exciting times at GDS. We’re moving forward on a number of new fronts, so it’s essential that we keep pace with progress as we continue to expand the business. Charlotte’s appreciation of engineering and technology and her previous work in taking forward projects in the architectural field makes her a great fit for our principal marketing role.

“Katie’s proven sales skills will support our recently created on-site service operation, as well as reinforcing the wider GDS team as we open up new channels. Both are very capable, committed and energetic individuals, who will be instrumental in helping to shape our future.”

Charlotte Fenwick commented:“In my career to date, I’ve developed a real passion for the technical side of architecture and engineering. Whilst GDS is more embedded in a specific area of technology, I’m confident that my marketing knowledge and skills will transfer effectively and I’m looking forward to helping the company grow its new products and services. This is a new chapter for GDS and one that I’m delighted to be helping to write.”

Katie Dyer added: “I’ve worked successfully in both field and telesales within large organisations in the IT sector for a number of years. The chance to take on the challenge of representing a market-leading technology company, as it embarks on a period of diversification and growth, was too good to miss.”
