BACS Contamination Control had added two new technical account managers to accommodate increasing customer demand for our data centre and cleanroom cleaning services. Joe Pitchford has relocated from the UK to Sydney, bringing with him data centre experience in Europe and the Middle East. Having previously worked for 8 Solutions in a variety of capacities, Joe rose through the ranks to do everything from cleaning the data centres himself to business development and service delivery management. Based at BACS head office in Chatswood NSW, Joe is responsible for negotiating and delivering on national agreements with some of the largest data centres in Australia. When he’s not working, you can find Joe at the beach exploring his adopted country or following Lewis Hamilton’s Formula 1 career.

Based in Perth, Rick Polise is the BACS technical sales manager responsible for Western and South Australia. Prior to joining BACS, Rick worked for SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company where he helped businesses demonstrate that their products, processes, systems and services are compliant with national and international regulations and standards. In previous roles, he has gained experience in commercial equipment financing. Being a native New Yorker, Rick has also lived for extended periods in South America before coming to Australia some years ago. NY Yankees baseball is still a big part of his life, as are his daughter and son.
