Gillespie and Fitzpatrick to head up 3 solo distributor, Activ Telecom
Former Fone Logistics MD Ian Gillespie and financial director Michael Fitzpatrick will head up dealership Activ Telecom’s 3 business.
Fitzpatrick sold Fone Logistics to Daisy for £3.6m today (10 June), but prior to the sale Activ Telecom bought the 3 business from Fone Logistics for an undisclosed sum.
Gillespie and Fitzpatrick were registered as directors of the company on 1 June.
Activ Telecom, a dealership based in Northumberland, will now start distributing 3 airtime with Gillespie and Fitzpatrick at the helm.
Daisy-owned Anglia will oversee the rest of Fone Logistics’ business and connections, but dealers connecting 3 will work with Activ Telecom.
Meanwhile, Daisy will help Gillespie and Fitzpatrick with day to day business until they have set up an infrastructure.
Fitzpatrick said: ‘Two things have happened: Fone Logistics have sold the 3 operation to Ian and I. And, Fone Logistics has been sold to Daisy. Until Ian and I have set up an infrastructure, Daisy will be helping out with 3 day to day.’
Talking about only connecting 3, Fitzpatrick said: ‘We think it is a really good opportunity, it is a good network and we work closely with them. We have had very good success with 3 b2b connections and we will carry on in the mobile industry but will just focus on 3.’
