ThirdSpace and TiG enhance Sales and Marketing function with new senior management appointments

Alastair Rees - Head of Marketing and Alliances.
Written by Alastair Rees

The new appointments will see Rich Best and Gareth Rees Jones assume the roles of Chief Sales Officer and Director of Marketing respectively.

In wake of TiG’s acquisition of ThirdSpace, the company continues to grow and develop its senior leadership team to better deliver identity, security, and cloud transformation services to clients.

Rich Best, previously UK Sales Director for cloud technology solutions provider SoftwareONE, joins the company as the Group’s Chief Sales Officer – taking over from Nick Lamidey who has decided to step down after 11 years leading the ThirdSpace sales team.

Joining the business as the new Director of Marketing will be Gareth Rees Jones. With over a decade’s worth of marketing experience operating in the technology sector, Gareth will be leading the marketing strategy for the Group.

Both Gareth and Rich will be working closely together to expand TiG and ThirdSpace cloud transformation services into new and existing markets, whilst setting a new bar for client experience and success.

Nick has decided to hand over the sales reigns of the company that he has helped build, as he takes a different direction in his career and future. Group CEO, Des Lekerman, says: “Nick has been an inspiration and driving force behind ThirdSpace’s growth over the last 10 years. We wish him all the best as he embarks on a new life away from the industry.”

After five years leading Alliances and Marketing, Alastair Rees will focus on leading the partner strategy as Head of Alliances and will team up with Gareth and Rich to further TiG and ThirdSpace’s standing as a leading Microsoft partner.

These two senior hires bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and a network across Microsoft that will further enhance our reputation as a leading UK partner. It’s an exciting time at TiG, as we continue to serve our clients with innovative solutions centred on Microsoft technology.
