Project Manager / Senior Software Developer – Animed Direct (CVS Group)

Overseeing the re­launch of the Animed Direct website to a bespoke solution (turnover increase from startup to £2.5m p/a), along with the creation of the Internal systems to power the day to day running of Animed Direct (Inventory,
Stock Control, Fulfilment etc). Started as a standalone developer before expanding the development team to 5 developers under my management, to handle the requirements of CVS and its practices, along with the Animed ongoing requirements. I have also sourced and implemented a CMS for the parent company, so they can start to pull their Veterinary Practice websites (around 270) in to one managed system, allowing for each practice to maintain a unique feel. Currently, we are in the planning stages for a new CRM to manage the CVS loyalty schemes, to move away from the current paper-­based solution. This loyalty scheme has around
90,000 members. From the start at CVS, I was keen to promote Agile methodologies, introducing Scrum where required, teaching these methods of running projects to the relevant stakeholders.
