Fitek Group appoint UK Sales Manager

Fitek Group have appointed Mark Baterip to lead their sales operation in the UK.

Kaur Lohk, Fitek’s MD said, “It is with great pleasure that I was able to invite Mark to join us.  He comes with extensive B2B sales experience and the unique CV of having sold Invoice Automation before.  We are excited to expand our UK operation so soon and we are very confident that the FitekIN product will bring to the UK market a simple, robust and business focussed solution”.

Mark Baterip stated, “The opportunity to work with Fitek at the outset of their UK expansion was just too exciting to refuse. FitekIn is the product that I wanted to sell in previous Document Management roles. This system allows businesses to deploy automation in a matter of days without changing their process – we can literally reflect their manual process but without the paper.”

Fitek’s UK operation will focus on the FitekIN accounts payable solution, along with a package specially designed to support the work of accountants and ERP suppliers. Based in Leeds, the UK office will develop business users and channel partners and will have UK based dedicated technical support.

Baterip added, “Fitek are a very forward thinking and friendly organisation.  I have been so impressed already at how the UK is viewed by all my colleagues across the six other countries we operate in.  Far from an obstacle, Brexit is being viewed as an opportunity for our group to establish relationships with partners in the UK to the mutual benefit of both parties”.
