         CLOUD TELECOMS FIRM GOLDFISH HAS BEEFED UP ITS SALES                                                     TEAM WITH SENIOR SALES PROFESSIONAL JONATHAN BUNCE

 The Greystones based company’s new ‘Head of Sales and Business             Development’ aims to target its cloud services to large blue-chip companies

19th June, 2017; Greystones, Wicklow, Ireland: Cloud telecoms company Goldfish.ie has today announced its hiring of experienced technology sales professional, Jonathan Bunce, to fill the new role of ‘Head of Sales and Business Development’. Set up in 2010, the firm is undergoing rapid growth. The number of Irish companies signing up for its VoIP telecoms services is continuing to increase. It also now provides Software as a Service (SaaS), with demand beginning to take off for Quvu, its cloud-based contact centre management software.

Jonathan has 22 years’ experience in front line sales roles for major tech companies in Ireland and the UK.  He moved to Ireland in 2006 to join the management team at eircom PhoneWatch. In over 8 years at eircom he had considerable success, leading multiple call centres and increasing customers by 75%.  Before moving to Goldfish he spent time in the e-learning sector driving expansion into the global telecoms market and East Asia.

Gordon O’Neill, Goldfish’s CEO, said “Over the past 7 years we have established ourselves as a major provider of Cloud Telecoms VoIP services. While this remains the core of our business, the area where we are seeing the largest growth in demand, is for ‘Quvu’, our cloud-based contact centre management software. The tech sector changes rapidly, so you have to think ahead and listen to your customers. What we are hearing is that companies want the ability to license software and services through the Cloud, so we believe this supply model will be a key area of future growth for us. We needed to bring in an experienced tech-sales professional to help us achieve this and Jonathan Bunce fitted the bill perfectly.”

Specialist recruitment agency Red Tree Recruitment was appointed to handle the hiring process.
