Professional Background/Education eg. BSS/OSS
With a career in telecomms spanning 4 decades and after a spell of providing consultancy services I have recently joined Managed Access Ltd as their Operations Director. Managed Access is an exciting new venture to build, own and operate telecommunications infrastructure in the UK working hand in glove with fixed and mobile communcations operators.
I am a chartered engineer with full membership of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (successor to the IEE), supported by an honours degree from Sheffield University in electronic engineering. I am also a full member of the Chartered Management Institute, with nearly thrity years experience managing people and projects, and a record of leading teams to provide sustained performance..
My background is over thirty years experience in delivering communications infrastructure ranging from turnkey microwave projects in South America and West Africa, through business systems for private customers worldwide, to complete mobile communications networks for the UK operators.
I had twelve years with Orange delivering one of the UK’s most successful radio access network rollouts, comprising over 12,000 base station sites serving 13m customers. There I ran the construction, infrastructure deployment and network implementation departments.
My final achievement before leaving Orange was to deliver, ready for customer service, 2,650 3G sites in April 2004 as a solid foundation for Orange’s successful launch of 3G services to more than 60% of the UK population.
