Manchester, UK, Nov. 6 2023 --  ​​​​Pumtrix Technologies (PTX), a leading innovation consultancy for digital infrastructure, today announces the appointment of Louis Richards as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), effective 1st November 2023.

I'm excited to work closely with Louis as we build on the incredible achievements of the past year and continue to deliver substantial value for our business and our clients.

Louis' appointment comes after a highly successful first year for PTX, attracting multiple clients and partnerships across EMEA, Asia Pacific and North America with its unique Innovation Lifecycle and Innovation Network approach, delivering growth for clients through strategic innovation consultancy.

Louis comments, " It's an inspiring time at PTX with a team with big ambitions to challenge the status quo for digital infrastructure innovation and build something truly unique for the industry. 

It's clear the wider industry is under increased pressure to evolve and adapt due to multiple factors, providing PTX with the perfect opportunity to build a strong reputation as the partner of choice for on-demand innovation advisory expertise or execution solutions."

PTX continues to complete its investment plan announced earlier in the year to expand its headcount to 10 across leadership, industry consultants and in-house expertise by the end of 2023. ​Louis joins Clare Tattersall, PTX CFO and Neil Lathwood, PTX CTO, who both also joined the executive team over the past year.
