Avenir expands sales team
Avenir has hired Daisy Retail's head of mobile as its sales director for airtime as part of an expansion and reorganisation of its sales team.
The appointment of Tracie Fawcett comes as the team is split in two to focus on airtime and unified communications. UK sales director John Pett will head both teams. Edith Rose has been promoted to national sales manager and will be in charge of the unified comms team. Fawcett, who will lead the airtime team, previously worked at Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U. Avenir also hired Rob Kittler from 3G Comms as a business development manager.
Avenir said the reorganisation will allow Pett to focus on airtime, accessories and online/franchise services. Avenir MD Andy Tow said: 'The business mobile and accessories market is expanding and converging at such a pace that it is important the business is aligned to deliver our strategic initiatives. We are delighted to be able to reward Edith for her hard work and to welcome both Tracie and Rob to Avenir Telecom. They bring a wealth of experience which is vital in our ever changing, fast moving marketplace.'
