Senior Management

Gareth Davies

Gareth Davies is Managing Director of VoodooSMS, the trading as name for Bulk SMS Limited. The firm was established four years ago and operates from a registered office in West Yorkshire. From the moment the firm was established, it quickly quickly grew to be one of the leaders in its sector. The business now has a national presence, counting large multinational organisations amongst its customers.

The business owes its success and permanent improvement to three directors, of which Gareth is one.

Gareth started his first company at the young age of 19 which became a large IT ecommerce store with an annual turnover of £52m. Keen to expand his knowledge further, he left to join the telecoms industry in 2007.

Today, Gareth is involved with several companies all focused in IT & Telecoms. He is extremely commercially aware with an unrivalled knowledge in business integration. His understanding of how marketing can transform business success is second to none.

Gareth has recognised that today's mobile world has changed but SMS is still a key choice for marketers, as it is seen as far more effective and customer focussed. He's established VoodooSMS as the go-to provider for businesses like GoApe, HSBC, SportsDirect, Virgin Money and IDM, to name a few.

His business model challenges the norm, and provides an over and above service to that of it's competitors, as well as being an average 42% cheaper! No contracts, no hidden charges and no expiry dates are just some of the ways in which Gareth has ensured VoodooSMS stands out from the rest.

With just shy of 20 years in the IT & Telecoms industry, and a string of proven, successful businesses behind him, Gareth Davies provides an entirely trusted and well thought-of voice across this marketplace.
