Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi announces the appointment of its new Graduate Software Developer; Thomas Bird and Senior Export Technical Support Engineer; Kevan Fry.
Reflecting on the appointments, John Davies, Managing Director of TDSi commented, “Software has rapidly become an essential facet of any security provider’s offering and at TDSi it is as much a focus for our development as our hardware products. We have a highly talented and experienced development team, but it’s also a discipline that is very rapidly evolving. An important part of keeping our team fresh is taking on young people with a flair and passion to develop our offering – so I am delighted to welcome Thomas Bird as our latest graduate recruit.”
Thomas studied A-Levels at Exeter College before gaining a first class degree in Mathematics at Portsmouth University. He went on to study a Master’s Degree in Advanced Mathematics at Exeter University and graduated with a merit.
Growing the technical support team, which assists both partners and customers, is equally vital, as John Davies added, “As well as developing the right products we need to ensure these systems can be successfully installed and integrated at customer sites around the world – so I am equally pleased to welcome Kevan to the team. He will be available to support our export partners and their technical needs or enquires wherever they are in the world.”
Before taking on the new role, Kevan previously worked with TDSi as a contractor, as well as being an EPOS systems engineer and also a Radar Technician with the Royal Air Force. Upon accepting the new role he commented, “I enjoy learning and training with new technology as well as travelling and meeting new people – so being the new Senior Export Technical Support Engineer is a perfect role for me. TDSi and its team have a great energy and I look forward to being a key part of the ongoing success.”
This latest round of TDSi appointments follows an impressive set of recent recruitments across the company, which have included Poole-based Officer Manager; Kathryn Sutcliffe, exports Customer Care Advisor; Jody Hayter and TDSi France’s new Paris-based Assistante Technico-Commerciale; Samia Dali. TDSi has also bolstered its sales team this year with the appointments of Regional Account Manager for Northern UK Nick Bartlett and the Director of UK Sales, Adam Norris.
