Chevin relocates as part of bid for expansion down under
Taking a crucial role in the drive for growth on the continent is managing director and founder of Chevin, Ashley Sowerby, who left the UK for Sydney in September last year: 'The opening of our new office will help us to better serve the growing customer base in Australia in terms of both project management and implementation. It will also allow us to grow our team here as we push hard into the market and respond to new business development opportunities.'
Having served clients in Australia for over a decade from its UK office in Derbyshire, Chevin recognised the strength and growth potential in the Australian market and so in July 2009 established its first Sydney office.
According to Mr Sowerby, the company's focus to date has been to develop strategic customer wins amongst sector-leading businesses such as NSW Rural Fire Service, Harley-Davidson Australia, Blue Mountains City Council and RSL Care.
'Having gained an excellent track record with businesses operating at the top of their fields,' continued Mr Sowerby, 'our challenge now is to continue to deliver on performance and flexibility with these customers, while pushing hard into the remainder of what is a considerable market.
'We'll be working towards a big push at AFMA's annual trade show in March, and are confident that not only do we have world-class products, we now have the right infrastructure and an experienced team in place to return excellent results for Chevin Australia in 2010,' concluded Mr Sowerby.
