Fast-growing telecoms provider Pure Comms has made a number of internal changes and a high-profile appointment in order to form its new four-strong board.
Managing director Rob Vivian heads up the quartet. Colin Pearson steps up to become finance director and Gemma McMillan becomes operations director.
The fourth member is Abdullah Ali-Ahmadi, who joins the Clevedon-based firm as a non-executive director. He is also director at Axent Enterprises.
Mr Vivian said: “We’ve grown rapidly since our inception three years ago and the newly formed board will provide us with a sound structure in 2013 and beyond.
“Pure Comms is a growing business that is creating employment in this region. Having an experienced and capable steering group will ensure we continue to grow, as well as provide the added-value service which our customer’s benefit from.”
Abdullah comments on his appointment to the board: “Pure Comms is a business that has huge potential.
“It’s a privilege to have become a member of the board and I’ll continue to work hard alongside Rob and the team to deliver strategic support.”
Colin Pearson is an experienced chartered accountant and previously worked as an AIMS accountant. He has also been a business owner, running a mail order company which distributed desktop equipment. He joined Pure Comms in 2012 as financial controller.
Gemma McMillan is a Pure Comms stalwart, having worked with the company since 2010, when she joined as operations manager.
The company works with a number of high-profile businesses and organisations such as Bristol Airport, the UK’s leading fuel supplier BWOC, recruitment consultants Redrock and auctioneers Bonhams.
Pure Comms was also crowned Business of the Year at the Sian Lloyd-Jones Business Awards in October 2012; and won re-seller of the year at an industry awards in December 2012.
