Proven experience in Telecoms transformation

Any business is only as strong as its leadership team. Whether you are a partner organisation, a customer or a potential investor you can be safe in the knowledge that each member of the senior management team brings a unique set of skills and experience to the group. The Company was formed fifteen years ago after the team had collectively undertaken consolidation and transformational projects of European Telecommunications providers.

The team combines a wealth of experience gained largely in the Telecommunications Industry. With strong pedigrees in Network Architecture, Mergers and Acquisitions, Finance and Marcoms our Senior Management team could not be stronger. Ventelo, BT, Cable and Wireless and Nortel are amongst the companies they have worked in, but as you can see from the individual profiles there is hands-on experience at building a business from the ground up.

Mergers and Aquisitions
