Ben Newton has been appointed Project Account Manager, responsible for working closely with key clients on their hosting, support and development requirements. Ben is an experienced Drupal open source professional, with expertise in the agile development processes. He will be a key member of our project team and responsible for advising clients on the best ways to harness the potential of the Drupal framework.
It’s important to us, and our clients, that our key project account managers understand the market as well as the technology, and before joining Ixis Ben worked for a number of IT companies, including Arrow, Nimans and MWR Infosecurity.
2016 was an exciting year for us. Recent successes include completing a two-year web infrastructure project for the British Council. The work involved the re-architecture of the council’s web infrastructure, with changes to hosting processes and the deployment of e-commerce functionality. Ixis continue to deliver ongoing service management and 24/7 support to the British Council, to ensure its network of Drupal sites remain accessible and secure.
We also moved to new offices in Manchester city centre and Warrington centre and coupled with the introduction of remote working two years ago it has proved to be a great success. With two offices spread out across the North West it provides an added degree of flexibility when it comes to both meeting clients and attracting new recruits.
It’s important that we continue to look for the best talent to fill important roles in the company and we’ll be looking to strengthen our team further as we move into the New Year
