I am a PhD qualified expert in broadband technologies with experience across multiple markets. I plan, deploy and operate broadband networks with a focus on FTTP technology whilst also having an interest in investments with an entrepreneurial focus.
At present I am non-executive chairman of several ISPs and infrastructure operations. I am also a lecturer of Optical Communications at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Being able to share expertise and educate growing professionals is something I find hugely rewarding and motivating.
I believe our industry plays a pivotal part in society’s progression and am proud to be part of an organisation that is not only at the forefront, but is also a driver for positive social change.
Since qualifying with CIMA in 1994, I have gained experience in working in both large blue-chip organisations helping scale high-growth SME’s being a key member of the senior leadership team that grew a property developer from £6M turnover to £30M over the course of four years and more recently Finance Director of a multi-service utility contractor that grew from £13M to £100M turnover over a six year period.
I also hold a non-executive role with a property development and construction group.
I am excited about the legacy that DI will create for our country’s telecoms infrastructure whilst providing a current benefit.
My experience involves leading and executing multiple technical projects within fibre, networking and software development. On a personal level I am highly interested in research surrounding FTTH technologies, radio & optics integration and ultra broadband networks. It is important to stay aware and educated when it comes to direct and indirect industry developments, learning from others, whether it be individuals or businesses small and large, is something I encourage colleagues to do and share.
I have studied and obtained multiple degrees in the telecommunications sector which is something I am extremely proud of. I have a thorough understanding of the layers within our industry, which positively informs decisions that can ensure our business runs smoothly.
