He was previously a shift manager and prior to that a sales manager within a contact centre providing outsourced services to major household name businesses. His territory for the company covers Northampton, Peterborough, Nottingham, Leicester and the East Midlands.

Speaking of his appointment, Mr Heppinstall, said: “I was impressed by the breadth of the Bond It product range, by the strength of the business and by the speed of its growth. For me, it was a case of a chance to join an exciting company with exciting products - and at an exciting time.”

Mr Howship, said of his appointment: “Bond It is a large and growing company with a reputation for recognising and rewarding talent. I was attracted to the business by the opportunities it can offer and by the prospect of being able to contribute to its success.”

Paul Walters, sales and marketing director at Bond It, added: “Everyone at Bond It is delighted to welcome Ian and Joe to the team. They both have unique skills and experiences but a shared passion for Bond It, our customers and for our continued growth.”
