Appointment of Business Development Manager
UK supply chain risk management consultancy CHAS has appointed Sharron Parsons-Shepherd as business development manager.
Parsons-Shepherd brings extensive experience in business development and emergency communication solution sales to the role having spent 18 1/2 years at PageOne Communications, the provider of multi-channel mobile messaging and critical alerting solutions.
