LINKFRESH expands team with eight new recruits
Cambridge-based food supply chain software specialist LINKFRESH has boosted its UK and US development and deployment resources by adding eight new team members.
In the UK, five new consultants bring additional Microsoft Dynamics NAV & AX product development and deployment skills.
The recruitment drive comes off the back of strong 2015 growth figures and a significant rise in LINKFRESH’s UK order book. Year-on-year group revenue increased by 38.5 per cent in its delivery services and 9.7 per cent in support services.
Antonio Da Silva joins LINKFRESH as a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer, having formerly worked with LINK Management Solutions, a Microsoft Dynamics Partner in Portugal. Jeff Sergeant and Sheldon Peacock join LINKFRESH as Microsoft Dynamics NAV consultants.
Jeff and Sheldon bring a wealth of “customer-side” implementation and business process expertise having previously worked with the LINKFRESH ERP and Microsoft Dynamics software at food businesses such as Produce World, AB Agri and Rustler Produce.
Completing the team, Csaba Kiss, who previously worked at Microsoft Dynamics partner Ebecs, has taken on the role of product development consultant at LINKFRESH. Krassimir Trendafilnov joins as an AX Developer from XAPT, Microsoft Dynamics partner in Bulgaria.
Meanwhile, LINKFRESH Inc, based in California, has also added three team members.
John Lischefska recently joined as director of business development. John has more than thirty years expertise in business and channel development, sales and product strategy and has previously held positions at Microsoft and several Microsoft Dynamics partners, such as Columbus Global and Edgewater Fullscope.
On the delivery team, Liz Jacobs joins as Microsoft Dynamics NAV consultant to work closely with LINKFRESH’s expanding US customer base. Liz previously worked with another food industry focussed Microsoft Dynamics partner, Beck Consulting.
To complete the LINKFRESH Inc team, Trisha Gregory, joins as new LINKFRESH project manager. Trisha is a highly experienced project manager with many years’ expertise in IT, BI and ERP project management.
Speaking about the expansion of LINKFRESH’s global team, Nikki Scarr, chief operations officer at LINKFRESH, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to welcome such a wealth of talent from across world to our global consultancy teams. Last year we experienced really strong growth as a company, and we are looking forward to continuing to press ahead, bringing our specialist software solutions to fresh food organisations across the country.
“In light of the recent high-profile food recalls we have seen here in the UK, a real spotlight has fallen on the need for suppliers to be able ensure full traceability across their supply chains, so that any issues can be quickly identified and dealt with. We look forward to continuing to expand our operations to meet that demand comprehensively.’’
