I am excited to announce that we have promoted two existing team members, Bav Patel and Peter Stringer, to directors. The company has also made 12 new hires over the last three months, all whilst working remotely. This restructure adds more strength and extra support to the wider team.
Bav Patel has taken on the role of Technical Director - Web and Infrastructure, having been with the company for over six years and playing a key role in its web development services. With over 13 years’ experience, Bav will be driving the web and infrastructure offering for the business.
Peter Stringer has been promoted to Technical Director - Mobile. He joined the business when the team at Degree 53 were still part of the Betfred mobile division in 2012. Peter brings a wealth of app development experience across multiple platforms and will be leading the company’s mobile services.
In addition, we have brought in new recruits to increase capacity across the board. They include Web and App Developers, Quality Assurance, Project Managers, UX Designer and a Business Analyst. All new starters have a great background in working with digital products and bring experience from a number of industries, whether from an agency or in-house.
This recruitment drive came from the need to provide additional support to client projects and expand the company’s capacity despite the lockdown. We have been continuously working on projects throughout the recent months thanks to existing clients increasing their demand for digital services and some exciting new business wins.
I’m delighted to recognise the great work both Bav and Peter have been doing. Their promotions are a testament to their expertise in their respective fields and delivering successful projects for our clients. I also want to welcome our new team members and look forward to meeting them face-to-face in the coming weeks. It’s been a tough few months for many businesses, and I’m glad we’ve been able to grow our team during this period whilst retaining all our employees.
As we’re cementing our reputation in a number of industries, such as online gambling, lottery, finance and wellbeing, all of our new hires are a fantastic addition to the business. They have already shown great determination to learn and get stuck into projects working from home. These changes will no doubt strengthen our delivery capability and enhance our offering too.
