In his new position, Chris will take responsibility for overseeing the process by which new clients are brought on board to Visualsoft’s e-commerce platform, including website build and ongoing projects, training and partnerships. He will also be working closely with Visualsoft’s business development consultants to ensure that all clients receive the best possible service and are fully satisfied at every stage of the process.
Chris previously spent two years as channel development manager at Visualsoft, where he created a new division within the company to help clients grow their business on marketplaces such as eBay. He later took over responsibility for managing all partner relationships, ensuring that the Visualsoft offering is completely up to date with the latest functionality offered by the likes of Sagepay and Amazon.

Headquartered in Teesside, with bases in Newcastle and Manchester, Visualsoft has a growing team of over 200 staff who specialise in the design, build, support and marketing of online stores for retailers across the UK.
Chris commented: “My experience in managing multiple websites for leading brands on the Visualsoft roster means I know exactly what’s required for a successful online business to flourish. I have previously overseen huge projects for the business, so am well-positioned to offer genuinely valuable support and guidance to our projects team. I’m very much looking forward to getting started.”
