The Team

The bid function was established in Egress four years ago by the current Head of Bid Management who runs this function solo. Over the last four years, the bid function has added demonstratable value to the business when it comes to supporting the sales team in winning new customer contracts and assisting the account management function with renewal activities across our existing customer base. Support via this function is provided in various ways through the sales cycle, whether that be completing onboarding documentation, security due diligence requests, proposal content, management of bids or securing customer renewals in both the private and public sectors. As the sales team has grown globally, the bid function is now at a point to grow in order to provide further support to the team.
