Timothy Willis, Head of eCommerce, South West, cites the West of England’s unique combination of talent, opportunity and culture as a factor in opening an office in Bristol. Having had experience of the city in a previous role, Tim could see that PushON would complement the businesses already located here and would provide the company the opportunity to grow.
He states: “Bristol is a fantastic creative city which gives us a strong foundation to build our presence, with technology now the dominant sector. Not only do we want to win business here and add to our already impressive client list, but we also want to share our knowledge of everything digital and eCommerce with the wider community.
We have a strong relationship with the universities in Manchester and want to expand in the same way in Bristol. PushON has a proven track record in the pharmaceutical, engineering, and construction sectors amongst others. We’re excited to bring our expertise to local and regional businesses here in the West of England.”
One of PushON’s directors already knew of Invest Bristol & Bath and was aware of the services they could offer. Tim reached out to them to capitalise on their knowledge of the region.
“IBB has been incredibly helpful in making our transition into Bristol a smooth one,” mentioned Tim,
“The team helped source our office at Runway East and introduced us to the region’s top digital and technological companies. Their knowledge of the region and its networks meant they could recommend meet-ups, events and webinars in the region which will be instrumental to us making the right connections, saving us time and helping to launch our company quickly.
The IBB team will be integral to us moving forward our expansion efforts in the region.”
