Former rocker swaps mic for marketing


Derby-based Develop Training (DTL) has appointed marketer and former rock singer Steve Braund to head its marketing team.

Braund previously spent six years as marketing manager for an engineering firm, and before that had a decade-long career on the alternative rock scene as front man, lyricist and manager of cult band Vert.He said: “There’s a great togetherness at Develop – everybody pulls in the same direction, and with my previous experience in the utilities sector, I think it is a great fit for me. I’m looking forward to helping the company grow by raising its profile as we introduce new suites of specialist training to market.”
