POSTED 10/16

We are delighted to have appointed Jon last October. He has an excellent track record in the industry and will be working on growing the number of technologies we support as well as creating new major accounts within the UK and Irish hotel market. Jon’s words, upon joining htm last year were as follows:

“In 1994, with the invention of Goldstar and Panasonic key systems, I began cutting my teeth in the world of Telecommunication Sales, going door to door on Trading Estates doing the hard sell. A lot has obviously changed since then!!! As with many Salespeople back in those days, I worked my way around the leading companies looking for the best compensation package and began to gain experience and knowledge in leading brands of Telecom Hardware. 11 years’ ago the world of Hospitality was opened up to me and I haven’t looked back. During those 11 years, I honed my skills of providing Turn Key Comms/IT/WiFi Solutions to new build Projects and Refurbishments. I have great knowledge of all Brand Standards and can apply those to “Boutique Hotel” environments for those requiring a more bespoke guest offering. I have successfully consulted, sold and implemented to the likes of core-brand Hiltons, Double Tree and Hampton hotels, along with IHG Crown Plaza, Indigo, Holiday Inn and HIExpress, having recently worked directly with IHG and a Franchisee to develop and open the first Generation 3 Express in the UK. Taking this Brand knowledge and applying it to a more Boutique environment I have successfully provided Comms and Data solutions to properties such as Cliveden House, Chewton Glen and The Lygon Arms along with providing full consultancy and Project Management to the award-winning Ampersand Hotel. I have now a full skill set to offer Consultancy, Design, Sale, Implementation, Project Management and ongoing Support with good knowledge of Mitel, TigerTMS, Ruckus and Cisco. I have known Simon and HTM for many years and we have shared a mutual friendship with regards to both our Industry and our shared passion for motorsport / cars. It became apparent to me that I needed a new challenge in life and HTM seemed the perfect venue in which to pick up this mantel and move forward. htm are a renowned and respected Company within our Industry and I want to bring my skills and knowledge to them to bring to the market a strong offering for potential clients looking for voice and data solutions I very much look forward to the future and know we will be successful in our venture.”
