News : Sigma Connected Bolsters Senior Management Team in South Africa


Cape Town, South Africa, Apr 12, 2022 -- A business outsourcing provider has announced the appointment of a new senior director who will support and develop the company’s offshore offering in South Africa.

Sigma Connected, which offers expertise in customer contact, collections and sales across the energy, water, retail, financial services and telecommunications sectors, has appointed industry specialist Bevin Sandras to the role of Director of International Operations.

Bevin joins Sigma Connected from US-owned business SubjectWell where he was Director of Call Centre Operations. With established links across the BPO sector, Bevin also worked as the Operations Director for Capita in Cape Town where he was in charge of offshore clients in the telecommunications, retail and energy sectors.

With over 16 years’ experience working across the outsourcing market, South Africa-born Bevin will report to the Group’s Chief Operating Officer Mike Harfield with a brief to ensure Sigma’s offshore call centres in South Africa continue to create a best practice environment for its clients and its employees.

Mike Harfield said: "Bevin is a respected and well-connected industry expert across the BPO sector so attracting him to Sigma Connected is an important appointment for us as we look to grow our offshoring capabilities and credentials even further in the months and years ahead.

Bevin Sandras added: "Sigma Connected is already hugely well positioned in the international BPO market. I am proud to have the opportunity to help bolster Sigma’s credentials in its offshoring operation in South Africa where the company has a superb, inclusive culture.
