Ocucon has expanded its team with the appointment of Maral O’Brien, as Business Operations Support Executive. Joining Ocucon from a marketing role in a Newcastle-based education start-up, where she gained significant experience in new business generation and stakeholder engagement, Maral will be responsible for aiding Ocucon’s business development and furthering growth as the company continues to expand.
Maral commented: “This is an incredible opportunity, to join a start up that is accelerating at a breath-taking pace. As the business seeks to break new ground, both commercially and technologically, there are hugely exciting opportunities ahead, and I look forward to utilising my skills and contacts to help facilitate Ocucon’s rapid growth.”
The announcement comes only a matter of weeks after the North East based technology start up announced it has signed an Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) that will see HPE produce Ocucon-branded equipment for use on client sites, including Ocucon branded wfrorkstations and servers.
Gary Trotter, Co-Founder of Ocucon commented: “As a growing business, finding the right talent is key.Maral’s experience and proven ability is evidence that the North East has a huge bank of talent, which makes it the ideal location for a company like ourselves. Maral has only been working with us for a short time but has already made a big contribution, particularly with our new business efforts in the US, Maral’s home country, and we’re very excited to welcome her to our growing team.”
