Licensing Sales Manager for Western Australia, Ehlers, comes to Data#3 with a diverse range of sales, leadership and technical experience, as well demonstrable skills in coaching and financial management. Uniquely, Mark also ran his own family retail business, gaining great knowledge and understanding that will be critical to his role at Data#3.
“As promised at the start of this financial year, we will continue to invest in local top talent to facilitate our expansion and align to our strategy – ultimately helping to deliver the best services and solutions to our customers,” concluded McGarrigle.
In May 2018, the company announced its move to a new digital and collaborative workspace in Perth’s CBD.
