XPO IT Services, one of the country’s leading computer recycling specialists, has announced a major new appointment to its staff as part of an increased demand for its services.
New business development manager Richard Nuttall, at XPO IT Services of Telford.
Richard Nuttall, aged 38, of Madeley, Telford, joins the XPO IT Services team at Hortonwood in Telford as business development manager, having worked for the past six years in sales and marketing for brands like Belkin and Verbatim.
Richard said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at XPO IT and look forward to helping them expand their highly regarded data and hardware destruction services.
“There have been several instances recently of large organisations, including the NHS, receiving heavy fines for the loss of personal or sensitive data, so with a continued increase in legal requirements and legislation, the need for the secure destruction of delicate material is growing more important all the time.
“We also purchase unwanted equipment nationwide as well as offering a service to upgrade or refurbish current IT hardware and have recently become an Approved Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, thereby supporting environmental issues and helping companies manage their budgets.”
Welcoming Richard to the firm, managing director Steve Urbicki added: “Richard brings with him a wealth of experience and we believe that he will be a vital asset in helping the company move forward.
“We are extremely proud of the fact that we are one of only a few recycling companies that have ISO 27001, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation and believe that on-going investment in both people and new specialist equipment will provide an even better service to our customers throughout the UK.”
Boasting over a decade of experience in the sector, the company has invested heavily in its ‘state of the art’ recycling plant in Shropshire, which is able to shred whole sections of computer equipment as well as featuring a mobile hard-drive crushing unit which can be taken out on-site to securely destroy hard drives and other media for clients.
