GDS Appoints Harry Pain as Sales and Marketing Support
UK – GDS has announced the appointment of Harry Pain to the post of sales and marketing assistant, supporting its growing team. Harry is a dynamic recent graduate, holding a BA (Hons) in Event and Hospitality Management, who joins the company after three years experience in administration, office support, research and content creation for Penny Brohn UK, a major cancer support organisation. His academic background combined with the wide-ranging experience gained in his previous role makes him a perfect fit for the demands of his new position, which will see him offer support across the GDS team as well as liaising with customers and outside agencies.
Managing director Matt Lloyd welcomes the new appointment: "Harry possesses exactly the drive and energy that is required within the GDS team. These are very exciting times for us, we are growing and our products, new and established, are having a global impact that is driving demand at an ever-increasing rate.

Harry is a tireless operator and I'm sure he will prove a great success at GDS."
Harry Pain looks forward to the task at hand: "I'm very excited to be joining GDS. There is an incredible buzz around the place and it was pretty quickly apparent that everyone on the team is passionate about their work.

I know that my new role will push me even harder – to become involved in a market-leading, cutting edge technology company is a fantastic opportunity and I'm relishing the challenge."
