Virtual1 has announced the appointment of David Simpson, as Operations Director, in a move to further strengthen the senior management team.
David joins Virtual1 from Virgin Media, where he held a number of senior roles within the operational division: from being Head of National Networks; through leading Business Wholesale provisioning and service management function; to, most recently, running strategy, analytics and NPS for the COO, shaping the 5-year strategic plan across 10 operational divisions and linking that to the long-range financial plan.
Tom O’Hagan, Virtual1 Chief Executive Officer, says “David is a significant addition to the Virtual1 senior team and we are looking forward to benefitting from his extensive operational experience in the telecoms industry. He is a positive, energetic and enthusiastic person, who will fit in very well with our core team ethos and prove invaluable as we look to expand our operations.”
Speaking about his new role, David says, “I’m really looking forward to getting to know the whole team at Virtual1. This is a great and exciting opportunity for me and I can’t wait to get ‘stuck in’ and start to make a difference.“
Virtual1 has also announced the expansion of its network across the UK. The company will be extending both its existing footprint within Greater London and out to include a further 180 towns and cities across the UK. It aims to provide the largest and most advanced wholesale-only network in the UK by the end of 2017
