“Already, within my first month at Hotensify, I have been delighted to engage with a wide variety of global strategic partners and customers alike, many of whom I have had the pleasure of working with previously,” Cullingford said.

“Facilitating closely with these partners on an array of different solutions and architectures, we help create, support and energise the delivered solution, ultimately ensuring customer satisfaction."
