Manchester-based WorkMobile, a cloud-based data capture specialist, has appointed three key hires, including two new business development managers, to help boost its expansion plans.
With over four years’ experience in IT and sales, John Schubert was previously an account director at IT solutions company, Zones UK, before joining WorkMobile as a business development manager. At Zones UK, he increased the revenue of one of its largest engineering clients from £20,000 to £150,000 in a four-month period. More recently, Schubert was a reseller business manager at CyberPower PC, a specialist vendor of gaming laptops and desktops. During his time at CyberPower, he was integral to the company’s revenue increasing by 10.5% (2017/18) and its customer base growing by 75% in his first month.
WorkMobile’s second appointment sees Hassam Adris also join as a business development manager. An accounting and business finance graduate from the University of Salford, Adris also achieved an MSc in international banking and finance, before entering the energy supply industry. He worked his way up to head of procurement and bureau at Inteb Managed Services, before then
moving on to become a business development manager at one of the UK’s leading energy consultancies, Effective Utilities.
Both John Schubert and Hassam Adris will play a key role in helping WorkMobile to expand its services and drive the business forward. They will also be responsible for building sustainable, lasting relationships with clients, as well as identifying and developing new sales opportunities within new and existing sectors to improve brand recognition and increase market reach.
In addition to expanding its business development team, WorkMobile has committed itself to nurturing and harnessing new talent by inviting a bright young star to join its apprenticeship scheme. Molly Smith has joined as a commercial apprentice and will be supporting the sales team to generate more quality leads and improve the marketing strategy.
The new appointments come during a strong period of growth for the company. Having recently developed a three-year business plan with the approval and support of its long-term South African investors, WorkMobile is primed to achieve its target of growing recurring revenues by 30% by the end of the year.
