Nicholas joins from Artex Ltd, part of the Saint-Gobain Group, where he was a national account manager for the UK’s leading DIY retailers.
Nicholas Hope will be responsible for driving market growth and future strategy by bringing Intoware’s automation platform WorkfloPlus to enterprises, as they look for smarter ways to improve the productivity of industrial processes and inspections by digitising the frontline workforce.
Prior to his role at Artex Ltd, Nicholas was a commercial account manager for firestone distributor, Permaroof UK Ltd, where he led its cross-functional teams through product life-cycle development and strategic planning for new products, gaining the top five customers in target industries within two years.
Part of his success was down to Nicholas developing an innovative flat roof calculator, known as the Kit Builder app, this step-by-step ‘tool’ enabled anyone from experienced tradesman to DIY roofers to get accurate, instant materials quotes 24/7, outside of retail opening hours – a market first.
Intoware’s CEO, Keith Tilley comments:
“We are delighted that Nicholas Hope has joined us at this time of tremendous growth. Nicholas is a well-regarded sales leader and a highly motivated individual with proven experience driving strategic sales and marketing initiatives to generate revenue by opening up entirely new and emerging markets.”
Nicholas Hope, business development specialist, Intoware, said: “I’ve always had a keen interest in new technologies, Intoware is at the very forefront of the industry 4.0 revolution, not only does WorkfloPlus deliver paperless working, but when combined with AI and assisted reality it transforms the efficiency of processes by capturing ‘real-time’ data to drive more meaningful decision-making.”
Nicholas enjoyed entrepreneurial success at just 13 years old, when he founded e-commerce business, Blue Orchard Records. He digitally remastered cassettes onto CD and vinyl, creating campaigns that trebled the value of the business in three years to £83,000.
Having later graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2013 with a BA in Business Management and Marketing, Nicholas decided to pursue his business development career locally. It means he is well placed to efficiently serve customer needs nationwide, thanks to Nottingham’s central location, right in the heart of the UK.
