Shelley has been with CVN since 2013 and has over 20 years’ experience working in residential and commercial panel management.

She was previously on the user groups for both Quest and XIT2 and her understanding of the perhaps inflexible nature of these systems equipped her with the understanding of the need for a more bespoke and flexible operational system, designed to meet individual client requirements would be the real USP for CVN .

Shelley has played a key role in the development of the CVN system and more recently client client portal and her development of a more flexible and bespoke system has proved popular with both old and new clients. She firmly believes that excellent (Human and approachable) customer service matched with ongoing investment into new technology is by far the best way to serve our clients
