New Project Manager, Chris Shelmerdine
Chris joins us from a diverse project background and is set to bring a wealth of project management knowledge to his role at Access. Chris’s expertise in Drupal has seen him working across a variety of sectors, including for the British Council and Ashfield Healthcare Communications. His passion for managing and delivering projects comes from working in a fast paced Agile environment.
Chris is excited about the opportunity at Access and had this to say about his new role;
“The team at Access were so welcoming and I’m excited to get stuck in with the team. My role will involve leading various projects, working with our delivery team in the studio to make sure we don't only meet, but we exceed client expectations. It will also be my job to ensure best practices are adhered to and that the correct processes are in place to manage projects more efficiently. I’m really looking forward to getting started on all of Access’ projects and working across their impressive portfolio of clients.”
New Web Developer, Ivor Harding
Our latest addition to the Web Development team, Ivor, is a familiar face around the office. Having freelanced with us for years we’re happy to say he is now a permanent member of staff. Ivor brings 20 years of web development experience with him and is looking forward to working with a team he knows so well already.
Ivor had this to say about his appointment;
“Access have always made me feel welcome, and I’m happy to be a permanent member of staff in the team now. The variety and scope of the work at Access is impressive, and I’m excited to work long-term on such interesting projects.”
