Gavin Williams, joins us from CDM Media (events) where he worked as a Business Development Manager dealing primarily in Africa within the Mining and Oil and gas industry.
Gavin is the latest member to the international team where he assumes the role of International Account Manager. He will be focussing on the in-company market dealing with corporations across the globe and developing the ever growing international business market and says:
"It's great to be a part of the fast-moving Astutis team - I found both the culture and vision of the organisation appealing. Having an understanding of the requirement of good standards of HSE from my prior dealings with the industrial market in Africa, I was keen to enter this marketplace and Astutis has afforded me that platform. I am looking forward to getting my feet under the desk and building relationships with key clients here."
Outside the office Gavin enjoys keeping fit going to the gym and also a martial arts entusiast - so we'll be keeping in his good books!
Richard Torra-Horn also joins the Astutis International team this month. With a degree in Psychology gained in Barcelona, Richard joins us refreshed from a sabbatical year. He has previously worked in many different areas, selling properties in Barcelona and Managing crews on national and International trains in Spain.
In his role as International Traning Solutions Advisor, Richard will be advising delegates in Europe, North America and Asia. Here his language skills are sure to be put to good use - speaking Spanish, Catalan, English, combined with a small amount of French and Russian Richard will be a real asset in helping our international clients.
"What initially attracted me to Astutis was the quality of the product. Since starting in the office, it has become evident that there is also a strong committment to customer service and its great to be part of such a vibrant team. I am also looking forward to putting my laguages to good use in assisting clients globally."
Richard is a happy soul who's nearly always smiling. Outside of work he takes a keen interest in everything related to wildlife, enjoys studying languages and loves the Spanish beaches - what's not to love!?
