Business Development Manager
Professional Background/Education eg. BSS/OSS
I am a Caucasian male with a huge entrepreneurial passion and spirit. My wife and I are immigrating from Cape Town, South Africa to Edinburgh in December 2015, Scotland to further my career in Europe, and have chosen Scotland, as it our ancestral home and have stayed there many times and have a good network.
I am applying for a BDM or Sales Management Position in the ITC/Telecoms arena, which I have been thoroughly entrenched with for the last 25 years.
I have a youthful, enthusiastic and energetic personality, where I started my business and marketing experience from studying law and business management, whilst working in the hospitality arena as a student and developed one of the first computer P.O.S. systems in South Africa with a software partner, where I wrote and sold on a business plan.
It was a success, where I sold the P.O.S management solution to the largest restaurant franchise, O'Hagan's restaurant group at that time.
I grew into having my own IT Consultancy in the 90’s for 10 years, which expanded into an Internet Service Provider for 10 years. I sold out in the 2000’s and went into the development job market and worked in Nigeria heading an ICT Computer Center Project for all the schools and Universities in Nigeria. Returned to South Africa, and built up a further two Internet /Telecoms Service Providers. I have had vast experience as a BDM in the ICT arena for the last 18 years with ISP’s, Telecoms, Hosting, last mile Wireless & Fibre connectivity, specialising in building expansive Reseller Channels and structures including B2C, and B2B opportunities and Strategic Business Alliances. With the adoption of older and current social media marketing techniques.
A clear indication is the proof of increase in turnover by 98% with the company, Comtel Communications in Cape Town, whom I have worked for in Cape Town, South Africa for 4 ½ years up till my resignation due for 30 November 2015. This included formulating and building up the entire B2C and B2B sales structure, contracts, CMS Management system and sales staff compliment.
My career has always been a passion and enjoyment, from being an entrepreneur, ISP business owner and being employed as a Business Development manager for two National ISP’s in a fast developing continents in Africa, including expanding my work in Nigeria, and USA.
Being a visionary and to keep my finger on the global pulse, I travel extensively to do so. This included a business contract term in Orlando, Florida
