Recruitment Update for the UK Rollout
The Company has been very pleased with the recruitment campaign to support the UK Rollout. As announced on 30 May 2019, BigDish has divided the United Kingdom into 10 Territories. Each Territory will have a Territory Manager whilst London will have three Territory Managers.
At present a total of 10 Territory Managers have been recruited (including the current two Managers). The remaining two positions are expected to be filled within the next couple of weeks. All three Territory Managers have been recruited for London.
Sanj Naha, CEO commented:
“The response to our recruitment campaign has exceeded expectations. We have a great team of new recruits joining BigDish, including OpenTable’s former highest achieving sales person for the UK and Europe. This will result in BigDish expanding its footprint across the United Kingdom. Everything up until this point has been foundation building and now the work of expansion begins across the country. So far in 2019, BigDish has been setting out the key milestones for its journey. Going forward the newsflow is likely to consist of reporting on these milestones being achieved in territories added, restaurant acquisition and enhancements of our dynamic pricing technology.”
