Clifton Club gathering marks end of ‘memorable’ 2013 for telecoms company

A leading telecoms company hosted over thirty business leaders and professionals at the Clifton Club in Bristol, to celebrate its achievements in 2013 and outline plans for 2014.

Pure Comms, which was founded in 2009, invited current customers and business people to the event, which saw attendees, discuss business over drinks and dinner.

Pure Comms counts world-leading auctioneers Bonhams, Britannia Windows – one of the largest window companies in the UK- Bristol Airport and BWOC amongst its clients.

Following dinner, its Managing Director Rob Vivian spoke to guests about his plans for the company and past achievements.

He said: “2013 has been a breakthrough year for Pure Comms – we’ve won major new clients such as Bonhams, moved to 2400 sq ft new offices, and grown to ten members of staff – all in the midst of a long and stubborn recession.

“We’ve taken risks and at times it’s been nerve wracking and tough but it’s been a memorable year. We have plans to create even more jobs this year and will be hosting a number of major business events as well.”

In 2013 Pure Comms also formed its first board of directors; and became the only telecoms provider in the region to become accredited to offer the highly advanced Unify telephone system.

Chris Paton, who is Founder of the performance consultancy Quirk Solutions, and following a successful military career as a Royal Marine became a key government advisor regarding Afghanistan, was at the event.

He said: “Running such an event for its customers and the business community is typical Pure Comms. They put the customer central to everything. Many businesses say it but Pure Comms do give added value – I’ve been working on a consultancy basis with them since the middle of 2013 and all is in place for them to fly high in 2014.”

Hayden Rushton, Managing Director of Britannia Windows, said: “Telecoms is often seen as a commodity product or second thought for many businesses owners – who just go for the cheapest option. But when things don’t work and you can’t get any support or slow connections and downtime are common, you do end up paying for it in your business. Pure Comms is all about value and it’s good to seem disrupting the market in this way.”
