Glider welcomes James Gregory to the team. Joining as our new Head of Sales, James will be working with both existing clients and new prospects, as well as recruiting and upskilling a talented new sales team.
James started his journey within the Digital Construction Industry over 10 years ago, working in the Autodesk Channel, supporting clients in selecting desktop solutions for design and engineering projects in the built environment. This, he says, is where he first became aware of BIM and when the construction industry was embarking on a transformative digital journey.
James was then approached by a leading BIM Consultancy to join as a Business Manager. With a heavy focus on digital design, engineering and construction, James brought with him the experience to commercially drive a new division.
James’ expertise in digital construction and BIM has led to an unparalleled understanding of the construction industry – what the current trends are and how business can use digital methodologies to reap significant rewards. James is fluent in his ability to advise construction professionals on steps to take to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
At Glider, James will be combining our information management software and services with his industry knowledge to offer the best solutions to complex problems – whether that be data management, digital delivery or collaborative working.
We live by our philosophy of powering a data-driven future. Every single member of our team believes in what we do. James’ customer-first approach is an incredible addition to the Glider team, as is his passion for his clients to find success.
James brings a great level of energy to Glider, along with a desire to drive our business even further, becoming integral to our growth strategy. Having worked with a similar client base already, James brings a great level of understanding around what our challenges and needs are.
James had this to say: “I am excited to be part of the team. There is a brilliant company ethos: everyone is pulling in the same direction, and fighting for the same cause – building a better future through digital transformation. This is what drew me to Glider, together with its expert skill in technology and advanced software development capabilities.”
Glider Managing Director Nick Hutchinson commented: “Bringing in a new Head of Sales demonstrates our commitment to our clients. Together, James and I will ensure that our clients and stakeholders find working with us as easy, accessible and results-oriented as possible. We have much to offer: enhanced technological services, our ability to adapt to changing environments and industry leading software for information management. James has made some outstanding achievements in his career to date, making him a significant new asset to the business.”
