B2b unified comms provider Bluebell Telecom has appointed Gamma Telecom founder Paul Banner to oversee Bluebell’s buy and build acquisition strategy.
Banner plans to grow the company significantly over the next two years through a 'buy and build' strategy.
Banner has been in the private equity sector for over 20 years. He entered the telecoms market in 2001, co-founding Gamma Telecom. Within the first four years of launch the company had sales totalling £100m. Banner was also responsible for founding Epsilon Telecommunications in 2006.
Banner said: ‘Through a concerted and strategic buy and build approach, I expect Bluebell to grow at a significant pace over the next two years. The company has a strong leadership team, the right approach and the backing of top-tier financers, all of which are set to contribute to impressive sustainable growth. I am pleased to be back in the industry and working alongside the Bluebell team.’
Bluebell director, Mick Crosthwaite, said: ‘Our sharp focus on simplifying communications coupled with the expertise Paul brings gives me the confidence that we will continue to grow and become a strong force in business telecommunications.
‘Our business is evolving and we will continue to seek out businesses that bring Bluebell an extra edge against the competition.’
