ebb3, an innovative Manchester-based technology services business has appointed senior sales employees John Leung and Peter Beswick.

The news follows recent investment of £1m into the business by Maven Capital Partners, and will signal the first of many new appointments as part of ebb3’s plans for rapid expansion.

Leung will cover business growth and strategic accounts in the architecture, engineering and construction and oil & gas sectors while Beswick will be responsible for sales in the automotive and manufacturing sectors.

Leung said: “I’ve been lucky enough to have been involved in the development of some promising and innovative early stage businesses and I’m particularly excited to be joining ebb3.

“I recognise it as a company that embodies genuine innovation and scalability. When I’ve spoken to prospective clients, they have been truly excited by ebb3’s technology.

“ebb3’s team includes highly talented engineers who have created a best in class solution and it’s exciting to be involved with their level of innovation at this key stage in the company’s development.

“I look forward to leading the way in implementing a next generation solution by seeking early adopters in a changing working environment.”

Beswick said: “ebb3 is an innovative company. Its technology is truly disruptive, and scalable on an international level.

“Since ebb3 is based in Greater Manchester and the team all hails from the North-West, we feel like we’re part of Manchester’s heritage of pushing boundaries with invention, and the company culture certainly reflects this.

“Even though ebb3 is a growing business, I have been impressed that it’s treated as a larger organisation by its blue-chip partners and prospective clients due in no small part to its level of innovation and the quality of its partnerships.

“I look forward to bringing disruption to the market, enabling industries using 3D business application to revolutionise the way they work.”

The team will demonstrate ebb3’s cutting edge technology, the High Performance Virtual Computer (HPVC), to businesses in these sectors.

The HPVC can transform businesses by enabling every specialist to work remotely on any device, even when using data driven, highly demanding 3D graphical software such as computer assisted design (CAD) or computer-generated imagery (CGI) applications.

John Leung joins ebb3 from LIG Technologies Ltd and has worked in senior sales and commercial roles for 21 years, having worked at household names such as Coca-Cola, M&C Saatchi and BlackBerry.

Peter Beswick joins ebb3 from The Daisy Group (formerly Phoenix IT). He worked in numerous sales roles and commercial roles for IT networking and cloud computing solutions providers.

As part of ebb3’s plans for rapid expansion in the current financial year, ebb3 plans to expand its operations team. The company will look to employ upwards of 20 staff to support the deployment of their cutting-edge technology.

Chris Brassington, managing director of ebb3 said: “We are proud to welcome Peter and John to the team. Both John and Peter have exactly the right skills we need to sell our cutting technology.

“John and Peter have come on board as the first of many new appointments as we grow this year, and we look forward to watching the team grow with even more talented employees.”
