My knowledge and experience from the IT and media industries is something I can draw on in my new role.”
Reporting in to Jones, Smith will be responsible for creating the next generation of SGL’s industry-leading FlashNet archive management solution, including integration with third-party systems. He joins from BlueHub Solutions where he was a Junior Developer.
“We have a longstanding reputation for close co-development with our industry partners and as part of the next phase in developing our industry-leading FlashNet solution, strengthening our technical support offering is key. We’re delighted to welcome Glyn and Ashley to the team, and we are planning further expansion to the team in the coming months,” explained Bernie Walsh, SGL’s Joint Managing Director.
