Dan Brown

A welcome return for Business Development Manager Daniel.

Newcastle-based, Activ Technology, has announced the welcome return of Daniel Brown, as business development manager.

Daniel returns following a period of self-employment.

Activ Technology, which employs over 30 staff, is a managed service provider for IT and telecommunications. It has offices in Newcastle and Dumfries.

Daniel, from Hebburn, said: “Activ Technology is a family-owned business and the welcome I have received on returning has been great, I feel as though I am coming home.

“The company has grown significantly, both in the number of customers and staff. This is testament to the outstanding quality of service and commitment of the whole team. In 2020, I will help to drive growth further by cultivating new customers and developing existing relationships.

“It is marvellous to be back with the team, and, in particular, with sales manager, Dean Cowens, who I have worked alongside for many years.”

Daniel’s appointment comes at a time of significant growth for the company, with 2019 annual revenue up 15% and profit by 36%.

Dean Cowens, sales manager, said: “Daniel is well-respected and we welcome his return to a role that he is so well accomplished in. He is an excellent team player and knows what it takes to drive the business forward.

“The long-standing relationships we cultivate means that Daniel worked with many of our existing customers when he was previously with the company and so already has an excellent rapport with them.

“We have made a number of recent appointments in line with our rapid growth. Adding strength to our already tight team means that we can continue to deliver excellence to our customers as we expand.”
