IntelliFlo hires ex-Novia manager

Technology firm IntelliFlo has appointed ex-Novia manager Dave Chessell as sales director.

Chessell was previously regional sales manager at Novia before leaving the platform in March.

Prior to this, he was sales director for Skandia before he was made redundant as part of a restructure in 2009.

Chessell says: “The emphasis that RDR places on enhancing service and segmentation, without multiplying costs, mean the transition to single system propositions based on cloud technology will accelerate rapidly over the next few years.
