Two directors celebrate long-service milestones
Posted on: June 11th 2020


Two of swcomms’ directors have celebrated long-service milestones in recent weeks.

Group engineering director Sean Doyle reached 25 years on June 5 while group company secretary Harry Langley marked his 20th year on June 12.

Sean began work at swcomms when he was playing rugby part-time for Exeter Chiefs. After his rugby career ended, he worked his way up to operations manager in 2007 and began a degree in business management. Sean became director of operations in 2010 before progressing to his current role five years later.

Another former Exeter Chiefs player, Harry made 256 appearances for the club and worked in the banking, plant hire and quarrying industries before joining swcomms as commercial director in 2000. He was promoted to managing director in 2006 and then moved to finance director in 2015 before becoming group company secretary last year.

Harry also oversees the business centre arm of the company and Hy-Tech Enamellers.

swcomms managing director Brian Lodge said: “These latest milestones mean most of our board members have been formally meeting every month for over 20 years! Harry and Sean are key members of our business and have seen it change and grow from a purely telephony-based company to a multifaceted communication, connectivity and cloud solutions provider.

“Their leadership, loyalty, hard work and humour have been invaluable over the years. This has been further reinforced in the last few months when we have all had to adjust to new working regimes and the changing priorities of our customers. They are friends as well as business colleagues and I look forward to celebrating properly with them when we can.”

In addition, ICT director John Holdstock celebrated his 20th year in February. swcomms has two other long-serving 20-year-plus board directors, as well as recently welcoming Chris Dashwood as group finance director.
