Growth is top of the agenda for aap3's new sales director
3:10pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
GROWTH in Europe, the Middle East and Africa are the targets for David McCarthy, the new sales director at Southampton-based IT services and recruitment provider aap3.
David said: “I’m excited about the prospect of realising the potential of aap3. I see massive possibilities.
“We have excellent clients, excellent people and it is a huge opportunity. My key target is growth – consistent, profitable growth.”
David’s CV includes being managing director and group sales and marketing director at Neo Interactive Group, an IT company for retail and government.
Growing turnover from £3m to £15m, he secured multi-million-pound contracts with Boots, Wal-Mart and Sainsbury’s.
He also held managing and sales director roles at I-Way, a US venture capital-backed outsourced technology services company.
He grew turnover from £1.5m to £34m through growth, acquisition and integration, and played a key role in its $240m Nasdaq stock market launch.
David, 51, lives near Oxford and is a fellow of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management and a member of the Institute of Directors.
He added: “A lot of the attraction to coming to aap3 was the people I’m now working with – I felt that we could work well together through our shared philosophy of investing in good people.
“I want to build a team to take on new customers while firmly maintaining the quality service for existing clients. I understand the challenge because it’s a task I’ve faced before.”
aap3 sponsors Southampton FC and was named in Recruitment International magazine’s Top 100 list of leading recruiters for 2013.
It currently operates in over 30 countries across Europe, the US and the Middle East.
