NEOS Networks bolsters leadership team, making strategic hires in key growth sectors to further support the UK’s connectivity ambitions

New hires form part of wider management restructure at UK telco, which is undergoing period of sustained growth and driving forward innovative connectivity projects.

NEOS Networks – one of the UK’s leading connectivity suppliers, has announced the appointment of three new leadership hires to support the business’ impressive growth strategy, and ensure the UK’s digital future through the delivery of ambitious connectivity projects.

The news comes at an exciting time for the business, with figures revealing that the total number of employees has increased 98% over the past five years. Revenue has increased 40%, while capital expenditure growth of 282% reflects the increased investment in the network over the same time period.

The three new members of the leadership team are: 

  • Alexandra Gartrell, who joins the team as the inaugural General Counsel and Company Secretary
  • Vicky Bori, who is the company’s new HR Director
  • Jonathan Rowan, who further strengthens the leadership team as the new Business Development Director

Already in position and leading their respective sectors, Sarah Mills is officially announced as Network Operators Sector Director and Martin Samuel as Sector Director for the Public Sector. Paul Clark is announced as Sector Director for Energy & Utilities and Simon Willmott is the Service Providers Sector Director. Mike Magee has become the company’s first Sector Director for Transport. NEOS Networks is also engaged in a wide-ranging search for an Enterprise Sector Director to focus on working with large enterprises to drive the digital transformation and the connectivity agenda.

These hires fit directly into NEOS Networks ongoing commitment to focus investment on key growth markets that support the UK in achieving its connectivity ambitions. This includes the deployment of cutting-edge projects that will improve nationwide connectivity and drive greater economic performance.

Coinciding with these appointments, NEOS Networks is continuing its significant investment in network expansion, further advancing UK businesses’ connectivity opportunities. The telco’s “Project Edge” is currently in the process of unbundling 177 BT exchanges, further extending network reach to an additional 180,000 UK business postcodes. The first 95 exchanges are already live and available for services, all 177 exchanges are 100Gbps capable – meaning NEOS Networks is able to provide some of the highest capacities currently available across the UK. Meanwhile fibre agreements with Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) Three UK and O2 are forming the basis of enhanced fibre access throughout the capital and building the foundations that enable commercial 5G rollouts.

The business has also recently launched two new products, SD-WAN and Scalefast FTTC. These solutions align closely with the specialisations of the new Sector Directors and are providing customers with even greater choice when selecting a connectivity solution.

NEOS Networks announcement is one of the first examples of how Infracapital’s 50% investment in NEOS Networks, which was announced late last year, is enabling the business to attract world class talent and grow its market reach and presence.

Colin Sempill, CEO, NEOS Networks has said:

“The UK is embarking on the next stage of its digital transformation journey and with that comes new challenges. The emergence of technologies such as 5G and IoT are set to reshape our cities, transportation, public services and businesses, and have a wider impact on the economy. It’s important that we have the right people in place to align our business with this future vision. This is why we’re further expanding our leadership team, recruiting more of the best minds in the industry to support our customers with their current and future connectivity ambitions.”

“These new executive hires come at a time when we’re progressing our ambitious network growth plans to meet the targets that we have set ourselves over the next few years. It’s an exciting time for the business as we look to solidify our position as one of the leading UK telecoms, not only investing in the best technologies and key strategic partnerships, but also the right people.”
