Tony Bailey to be new head of Vodafone Partner Services
Head of Vodafone Partner Services (VPS) Dale Parkinson will move to a new senior job within Vodafone Enterprise at the end of June. He will be replaced by Tony Bailey (pictured), the current head of channel & distribution at Vodafone Group.
Vodafone has not revealed what Parkinson’s new job will be, but it is expected to be confirmed in a few weeks. Parkinson created and headed up Vodafone Partner Services two years ago and has worked in the company’s indirect business for four years.
He was instrumental in leading the VPS team through both the rapid growth of the Yes Telecom business and the subsequent design, creation and launch of both the Vodafone Partner Programme and VPS.
Bailey’s role at Vodafone Group features a particular focus on channel readiness for the new unified world. A spokesperson said he would be well placed to oversee the ramp up of Vodafone’s unified communications propositions in the UK.
Before his career in Vodafone, Bailey led Nortel’s PAN EMEA Enterprise Sales team and Nortel’s Channel Business for the UK & Ireland.
