51Degrees is delighted to announce two new senior appointments to its leadership team as the company heads into an exciting new phase of expansion. Richard Smith joins as Head of Sales and Chris Knight joins as Head of IT and Projects. Having settled into their trendy new offices in Reading's town center, 51Degrees is now in the process of transitioning from start-up position to a scale-up, positioning and preparing for significant growth as we head into the next decade.

Prior to this he successfully founded and latterly sold his Telecoms Reseller business. Richard will play a leading role in delivering our strategic objectives for growth into new markets.
