12 April 2001 (A0104) ~ Actinic plc, the SME ecommerce software specialist, has announced the appointment of its first marketing director, Nick Kington. Kington joins Actinic from Sage where he was the marketing director for Sage Enterprise Solutions.

Overall Kington has fourteen years of IT marketing experience with both hardware and software companies. These include Olivetti, Dell, Software Publishing Corporation and Avery. At Olivetti and Dell he was responsible for product marketing, while at SPC he was marketing manager before moving to Avery as marketing director. While at Olivetti he spent two years based at its HQ in Italy. He is married with four children.

"I am looking forward to the challenge of contributing to Actinic's future growth. I relish working in rapidly growing, young companies and, for me, Actinic is the right company with the right values and at the right stage of development to build on its current market leadership position. I believe it has the potential to become as familiar a brand name to SMEs as Sage already is. The e-business marketplace is here to stay and Actinic has an important role supplying the technology that enables smaller companies to exploit this exciting new, global sales opportunity," says Nick Kington.
