Ex-Skandia sales director Dave Chessell moving to Novia

Novia has appointed former Skandia UK sales director Dave Chessell as regional sales manager for London and the South-east.

Chessell takes over from Paul Boston who will continue as Novia sales director. He left Skandia in October 2009 as part of the firm’s sales restructure.

He says: “Smaller, more adaptable platforms such as Novia, that have a culture focused on technology, will flourish in a world that requires low overheads and propositions that are truly scalable.

Boston says: “Chessell’s knowledge of the industry is second to none and he has an excellent track record of producing superb sales results.”

Novia employs 15 former Selestia staff, Chessell is the first to move to the company from Skandia.
