Credit Where it’s Due

Engineering staff at the North East’s premier communications firm have proved they are a cut above the rest after chalking up 56 industry-leading accreditations between them.

Workforce training and development is high on the agenda for Gateshead-based Executel and as such, the firm’s nine-strong engineering team have all successfully undertaken extensive product and installation training, which has led to a series of official accreditations from leading global telephony provider, Mitel.

In addition, the team are now working towards further accreditations with global networking solutions provider, Cisco Systems, which will result in an additional 15 certifications by September of this year.

Of the achievement, Executel managing director, Tim Price, said: “The qualifications we now have, further reinforce our reputation as a best-in-class communications provider with the most experienced and knowledgeable workforce in the North East.

“We are continuing to invest heavily in our people as they are our most important asset and as a result, I’m confident when I say that no other telecoms firm in the region can offer the level of expertise that we currently can.”

As well as individual staff qualifications, Executel is a Mitel Gold Solution Provider, holds Avaya Silver Status and last month was awarded Select Partner Status by global networking solutions provider, Cisco Systems.
