January 18, 2008 -- AccessPlus has appointed Trevor Weldon to the position of group business development director as of 2nd January 2008. Trevor, who has twenty years of print management experience, is responsible for the acquisition of new business which includes increasing product portfolios for both new and existing clients and the development and recruitment of the group's sales force. As an executive director, Trevor is also a member of the TripleArc Group executive steering committee and of the group's operational board.
An industry specialist, Trevor spent the last three years as a sales director at print management giant, Communisis. He was responsible for leading the sales team and for negotiating significant contracts with a variety of large organisations and government departments. Prior to his position at Communisis, Trevor spent the majority of his career as sales director for Boise Cascade, which was later acquired by Gilbert Niceday where he remained until his appointment at Communisis.
Trevor Weldon, group business development director, comments on his new position: "I am delighted to have joined AccessPlus with an active role in helping further develop and grow its business communications and print management brand and offering. The Group has a strong vision and a dedicated and enthusiastic management team. I was truly impressed by the group's passionate and driven approach to expanding its technological, business communication and print management offering through AccessPlus. I believe that it has a uniquely consultative and bespoke product for the market and I am pleased to be on board to help develop this further."
Trevor's experience lies in helping organisations to identify their business requirements by implementing the necessary print management and business communications tools that will enable them to enhance productivity and reduce costs. He comments: "There's a huge amount of scope for technology, business communication and print management. There are many organisations that have yet to experience how these products combined with effective consultation can reduce costs but are keen to explore the benefits of outsourcing all of their print and marketing communications requirements to a single provider. At AccessPlus, we listen to our customers and we're not afraid to deliver something that's unique and individually suited. My role will help tap into areas of the market that requires this support by introducing the imaginative and ground-breaking propositions supplied as part of our product portfolio."
Jason Cromack, chief executive of TripleArc Plc and AccessPlus concludes: "The appointment of Trevor Weldon is of great significance and very positive for the group. Trevor brings with him many years of experience having worked with industry heavy weights to build their propositions and take them to market. Trevor's role will sit across both TripleArc and AccessPlus to maximise consistency and to expand both companies' offerings. As a driven and innovative organisation, we are continually looking to develop and strengthen our business approach and management team. Trevor adds a new dynamic to the organisation and with his previous leadership skills, supports our desire to expand our sales force and market share. Recruiting experienced and dedicated persons such as Trevor maintains our dedication to customers and to penetrating new markets."
