Press Release


MIS supplier Tharstern has expanded its team with 5 new hires in the past 2 months, after reporting a period of significant growth.

First to join the team was Laura Woodward, who is one of two Implementation Specialists hired to help deliver customer onboarding and training. Laura has been in print since her teenage years and ran the implementation of Tharstern at her previous company, Sherwood Press. “I’ve been a huge fan of Tharstern since I implemented their software at my previous company, so I’m very excited to be part of the team.” Laura Woodward, Implementation Specialist at Tharstern.

The second Implementation Specialist hired by the company in this recruitment drive is USA-based Zach Forest, whose previous role involved both prepress and production before leading the implementation of a web-to-print solution and its integration with the company's MIS software. “Working in these areas has allowed me to gain a better understanding of what printing companies need and I’m very excited to transfer this knowledge as an Implementation Specialist for Tharstern.”

A new Technical Lead, Stuart Walsh, has joined the software company’s development team with 15 years of experience working in C#, .NET, and associated technologies. Stuart will be a key contributor to the company’s development strategy going forward.

The helpdesk team will also be getting a new member when ICT Apprentice, Peter Birdsall, joins at the end of this month. This will increase the helpdesk team to 11 full-time members, all dedicated to the ongoing support of the Tharstern customer base. In addition to this, the company has employed Lynne Fairhurst as Executive Assistant, bringing the total number of hires to 5 in 2 months.

“We are busier than ever and happy to get all these new Tharsternians out there and working with our customers. We pride ourselves on offering more than just software – we're a true partner that our customers can lean on for technological advice and guidance, and these new team members will be hugely beneficial to these partnerships.” Keith McMurtrie, Tharstern CEO.
