VIA Grow Again With Three New Hires

Due to the successful growth of the company, the team at VIA is expanding rapidly with three new hires. We have now hired four new employees since we have moved into our new office with a few more in the pipeline.

We are welcoming Phil Thompson, Jade Hutchinson and Martin Cass to the company.

Jade Hutchinson – Finance & Accounts Assistant

Jade joins the Accounts Department from DHL and will be essential to VIA’s growing Finance Team. Jade will be supporting the Accounts Department with invoicing as well as office management.

Jade has worked in accounts for seven years and has completed her Level 2 AAT qualification.

Jade says “I’m looking forward working for VIA as I’m going to be doing a more varied role and work on each aspect of the accounts from start to finish. It’s exciting to be working for a growing company who are a lot more personal than the companies I have worked for before.”

Jade used to work in a gym and still likes keeping fit in her spare time as well as binging on boxsets.

Phil Thompson - Developer

Phil joins the Development Team. With a degree in computer science, Phil joins us from Merlin Business Software. Phil brings a wealth of .NET development experience and will be helping to add new features to the VIA product range and portal.

Phil says, “One reason I moved to VIA was that I wanted to learn a new language in F#. Also working in a new industry in Telecoms was very interesting.”

In his spare time, Phil plays the piano and guitar and jams with friends.

Martin Cass – Support and Provisioning Engineer

Martin joins VIA from Boots, where he worked five years in telecoms support as a Subject Matter Expert supporting the stores and head office. There Martin managed the Telecoms team, providing training, was involved in problem management and implemented proactive initiatives to deal with issues before they arose.

Martin will be doing a similar role at VIA, working on support issues, provisioning new customers as well as visiting customer sites.

Martin says, “I wanted to join VIA as they have a good business model and there seem to be opportunities here. I also wanted to work with up and coming technologies and unified communications is the future of telecoms.”
