Dave Manning has joined Eclipse as director of operations.
His arrival comes just a few months into a plan to double the size of the Exeter-based internet service provider’s business and create dozens of new, highly skilled roles.
Dave, who has more than 20 years of experience in delivering exceptional customer service, said: “I am both excited and delighted to be joining Eclipse, a company with visible ambition and drive.
“The team at Eclipse is extremely passionate about delivering an exceptional experience to their customers all the way through their relationship with us, and I can’t wait to be part of the evolution of this already successful company.”
Managing director Clodagh Murphy added: “I’m delighted to be welcoming Dave to the team and at such an exciting time for us as a business. With our growth plans in place, it’s essential for us to continue delivering a great experience to our customers; Dave’s knowledge and experience will help us to diversify and grow whilst maintaining and improving what we currently do.”
Meanwhile, Everys Solicitors in Exeter has welcomed insolvency expert Emma Davy to its team in Devon.
Formerly head of insolvency at Kitsons in the city, Exeter graduate Emma has more than 15 years’ experience as a specialist insolvency solicitor.
Everys’ newest associate acts for insolvency practitioners in contentious and non contentious matters, with particular expertise in business and asset sales, antecedent transaction litigation and the realisation of bankruptcy assets.
She said: “I advise businesses in financial difficulty, directors facing claims arising out of insolvency and individuals dealing with personal guarantees. I act for banks and lenders in the realisation of both secured and unsecured loans, and for creditors in debt recovery matters generally.
“I have joined Everys because I was looking for a new challenge and I saw Everys as a forward-thinking and progressive firm where there was a good opportunity to establish and develop an insolvency and debt recovery presence.”
Emma trained and qualified with Clarke Willmott before moving to Ashfords and then Kitsons. She regularly speaks at seminars and training courses for insolvency professionals, and recently spoke at the University of Verona on international debt recovery. She also sits as a Deputy District Judge on the Western Circuit.
James Griffin, managing partner of Everys Solicitors, said: “Securing Emma’s services is real coup for Everys and our clients. She is highly regarded among her legal colleagues and by the legal profession in general. She is rated in Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2013 as ‘tenacious and clever’ and her levels of service as ‘excellent’. We are delighted to welcome her to the firm.”
