Former Head of Marketing at Caplin Systems joins as Director of The CommsCo

72 per cent growth leads to opening of new London based office
Jennifer Reid appointed as Director to continue growth strategy

Growing 'next generation' PR agency, The CommsCo, today announced the appointment of Jennifer Reid to the position of Director, in its newly opened London office. Reid joins The CommsCo after nearly 15 years of working in B2B technology, and most recently four years at Caplin Systems, where she managed PR and Marketing in EMEA for the global e-distribution specialist.

Working closely with The CommsCo co-founder and MD, Ilona Hitel, Reid will help to scale the team across both its Winchester and new London office locations.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to help grow The CommsCo and to be part of an agency that is actively practicing inbound marketing. The team has proven success in delivering compelling content marketing strategies for its clients, across a variety of social media and PR channels," says Reid. "Inbound marketing has always been at the heart of what I do; it's great to be part of a firm that recognises the importance of creating specific content aligned to its customers' needs and the impact this can have on lead generation."

Reid joins at a pivotal time for The CommsCo, which has reported a 72 per cent growth since its launch last April. Additionally, it has effectively more than doubled its client list from seven to 15 clients in that time, including: Centrix Software, ControlCircle, The Mabey Group, Mabey Hire and SysMech.

"We're excited about what Jennifer brings to The CommsCo" says Hitel. "She's an entrepreneurial leader with a deep understanding of inbound marketing, social media strategy and marketing automation, as well as an accomplished manager of press relations. Jennifer's appointment will strengthen and broaden our team as we continue our growth in 2014 and the years ahead."

The CommsCo team continues to grow and is recruiting for an account manager to support the new London office, as well as account executives for its Winchester and London office.

"The firm is in a great position as it truly understands how the communications landscape has changed and has formed a unique proposition around it. I'm delighted to have joined an extremely experienced and well-connected team. I can tell already, this is going to be fun."

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality.

“Why didn’t testing catch this” must become “How did this make it to testing?” Traditional quality teams are the crutch and excuse keeping organizations from making the necessary investment in people, process, and technology to accelerate test automation.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

And what are the essential components and how are they relevant to each other? How does the security play out? What are the best practices in formulating...
