HTEC invests in employees with seven internal promotions

HTEC, the EPOS, payment and loyalty solutions company based in Southampton has invested in its existing workforce by promoting seven of its employees in support of recognising and developing internal talent.

The Service Desk team sees four promotions with Michael Lanham taking on his first management role as Service Desk Team Leader, Erin Mattingly and Chris Green in the newly-created positions of Service Desk Shift Manager and Terrie-Anne Rickman as Service Improvement Manager.



Michael will be managing the first line team and inducting new recruits to the Service Desk, ensuring all necessary training is undertaken to deliver HTEC’s exemplary customer service.

The duo of Erin Mattingly and Chris Green will take over the management of two shifts - covering seven days a week to ensure HTEC has full office cover to deliver unlimited support to its customers.

Terrie-Anne Rickman, who boasts over 15 years’ service with HTEC, will be helping to push HTEC’s business forward through improving its customers’ experience.

HTEC’s Test team sees the promotion of Andy Palmer to Retail Test Lead and Nick Bradley to POS Lab Lead.  Andy’s role will help cover the vast landscape of the retail development function ensuring that high standards are maintained across test cases.  Following 11 years’ service in various roles, Nick Bradley becomes HTEC’s POS Lab subject matter expert.

Lastly, Steve King takes on the role of Junior Project Manager following HTEC’s support and funding towards a degree which saw him grow from an apprentice through to his most recent promotion.

Wayne Swallow, Managing Director of HTEC, said:

“We try to promote from within so we can nurture retail expertise in our sector. Investing in the team that we have ensures HTEC offers its clients the best it can.  Our annual employee development review is utilised to identify people with the right skills and attitude and then we put a programme in place to develop their skills and help them build a career with us.

“Rewarding our team is vital to encourage an excellent service for our clients, keeping everyone motivated and retaining talent.  With this in mind we take steps to identify individuals who are delivering an outstanding performance on a regular basis and they are rewarded through our employee engagement portal, Perkbox.”
