Alex Rumsey: TDSi’s new director of sales in the UK

Integrated security solutions specialist TDSi has announced the appointment of Alex Rumsey as director of UK sales. Rumsey’s promotion at the Poole-based company sees him take on the new role having previously served as channel partner manager.

Reflecting on Rumsey’s promotion, TDSi’s managing director John Davies commented: “We’re very excited to announce Alex’s appointment to this critical role. This promotion is very well deserved. Alex has proven time and again that he has the expertise, ability and dedication to successfully promote TDSi’s products and services to the UK market.”

Davies continued: “Alex is the perfect person to steer TDSi’s continued growth plans in the UK. His appointment also frees up other parts of the senior management team to further focus on developing exciting new products and concentrate on other strategic projects, such as exports growth. This is particularly good timing in view of the lucrative opportunities being presented by the lower value of Sterling against the Euro and the US Dollar.”

Rumsey himself explained: “I’m delighted to be taking on the senior sales role in the UK. TDSi proudly manufacturers its systems and products in the UK. The domestic market is also a key region for our sales. There are huge opportunities to grow and expand in the UK security market, and I will be looking to focus our team fully on these, as well as support our existing customers and partners here.”

Rumsey’s promotion follows a number of recent new TDSi appointments including those of finance and operations director Paula Warburton, marketing manager Francesca Meyrick and customer care advisor Madison Read.
