20:20 new management confirmed

A first round of appointments has been made to 20:20 Mobile Group’s UK senior management, following the appointment of new MD, James Browning, earlier this month.

Martin O’Grady is appointed operations director, heading up logistics, IT, HR, customer services and sales support. He also retains an involvement in the Group’s overseas operations as required.

Andrew Peat is appointed as purchasing and marketing director, with responsibility for procurement, marketing and product management.

Andy White is appointed finance director. Also confirmed is the new team of sales directors, whose portfolios will be channel-based rather than split by products. The key appointments are: Steve Sanghera for the dealer and SME channel; Matt Child for network specialists; Phil Henchoz for grocery and high street; Jon Miller with insurance and key clients; Andy Cutler for MVNO’s; and Nick Ryan with GFS.

Commenting on the appointments, Browning said: “I am delighted to confirm these first appointments to 20:20’s new UK management. These are high calibre people with a proven track record in their areas of expertise and I am fully confident they will help me deliver the step-change I am looking to make in the business.

“My intention is that they hit the ground running, providing seamless support for our customers and vendors as they review their business areas and set about building their individual teams,” Browning added. “The aim of this process is to strengthen our relationship management processes and offer a streamlined, fully-integrated service to everyone we deal with.”
