Nottingham-based specialist systems distributor and service provider ArtSystems is delighted to announce the promotion of both Tom Goddard and Robert Durrant to new senior roles within the business.
Tom Goddard will take on the role of Supplies Manager for ArtSystems, while Robert Durrant will move into the position of External Media Account Manager, encompassing all media ranges supplied by the company.
Tom has been with ArtSystems for eight years, developing his role within the business from Account Management to Product Specialist. In his new role, he will take over the day-to-day management of the internal supplies team.
As Supplies Manager, Tom will continue to carry out his existing product specialist functions, as well as look after other members of the ArtSystems supplies team. Tom will be uniquely placed to feed up-to-date market trends and intelligence into the supplies team that will help ArtSystems capitalise on opportunities sooner.
“This is a very positive development that will improve communication and allow us to be much more proactive,” ArtSystems Marketing Manager John Draycott says. “It is incredibly gratifying for me to have worked with Tom over the years and watch his career develop.”
Robert is also a long-serving member of the ArtSystems team, having been with the business since ArtSystems took over the UK distribution of Neschen Supplies almost 10 years ago.
His focus was initially working with end users to sell the Neschen brand and over time this role has extended to also cover resellers, allowing him to form many key relationships that have proved to be successful and incredibly valuable to ArtSystems.
“Robert has clearly demonstrated the ability to take on new responsibility and his passion and enthusiasm for the business never dwindles,” John Draycott adds.
“He is the ideal person to use his skills and experience to lead and showcase the whole range of media that we have. I’m delighted to see Robert take on this additional responsibility as his career moves forward.”
