“We have recently been involved in a number of large, high profile contracts both in the UK and abroad,” commented Rachel Tidmarsh, Managing Director of Leicestershire based Bluesky, “and it was crucial to our continued success that we underpin our frontline sales and production teams with the support they, the company and our expanding client based require. These appointments will allow us to build on recent success and will provide the foundation for future growth.”
