Axon Supports Expansion with Three New Appointments

Axon Supports Expansion with Three New Appointments

Macclesfield based cloud computing company Axon is supporting recent growth with the appointments of Codie Gill as Business Account Manager, Geane Pinto as Service Desk Engineer, and Ashley Burton as Junior Support Engineer. 

Codie Gill holds four years’ experience in IT distribution and joins Axon from Tech Data where she worked as a Microsoft Office 365 Specialist and Business Development Executive. Here she was responsible for growing Tech Data’s Microsoft cloud business by training and supporting resellers in the channel.

Geane Pinto joins Axon following seven years in the industry including roles as an IT engineer and computing teacher. He will now work on Axon’s service desk to provide technical support to the company’s expanding customer base. 

Ashley Burton holds a Business Administration NVQ and joins Axon from an IT helpdesk position at Macclesfield College where he worked to resolve technical issues for staff and students. Ashley will now build upon this experience, working with Axon’s service desk engineers to help support customers across the North West.

An internal recruitment drive has also seen existing employees Peter Griffiths and Rob Hill promoted to Technical Specialists roles where they will specialise in the design and development of Microsoft CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems, in particular Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online – a Customer Relationship Management solution hosted in the cloud.

Axon celebrated a record year in 2014 with a 40% increase on the previous year’s trading taking revenues from £1,136,000 to £1,585,000. In 2012 the firm invested some £100,000 renovating new office space at Lyme Green Business Park in Macclesfield, and in March 2015 took out further office space at Silkpoint in Macclesfield to support business growth.

Commenting on the new appointments Managing Director Tim Mears said; “As our team expands we are able to increase and improve our service offering – both in terms of the solutions we provide and the customer experience. The latest staff changes will enable us to concentrate on product development, while increasing our support teams and also creating further opportunities for growth. We are looking forward to seeing our new starters develop within the business and are pleased to welcome them on-board.“

Axon provides cloud-based IT solutions to businesses across the North West including the provision of public, private and hybrid cloud solutions, VoIP telephony and technical support.

In 2014 the business was recognised for its recent rapid growth, provision of technologically advanced business solutions and strategic plans for future expansion by being awarded Business of the Year: Turnover £1 - £5Million at the North East Cheshire Business Awards. This was followed in 2015 by being ranked as the 23rd fastest growing technology company in the North at the Northern Tech Awards 2015.
