Everything Everywhere has appointed former Sony Ericsson UK MD Nathan Vautier as its director of indirect sales.
Vautier will work across the Orange and T-Mobile brands and will be responsible for the strategy, objectives and performance of all indirect sales. He will have specific responsibility for trading with key indirect partners Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u, as well as dealers and distributors.
Vautier will join the company in May and report to Everything Everywhere chief sales officer Marc Allera, who said: 'I am delighted that Nathan has agreed to join our team, and having worked with him in previous roles, I know what he is capable of and what he will bring to Everything Everywhere. Under his proven leadership, we expect to grow our business through our highly valued indirect sales channel, and build on both existing and potential relationships for the future.'
Vautier joins from Aliph, the makers of Jawbone, where he was VP of sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa. He previously spent seven years at Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland, where he ultimately became MD. He said: 'The opportunity to join Everything Everywhere was just too good to miss. A company of this scale, with nearly 28 million customers across two of Britain’s best loved brands, offers some fantastic opportunities, and taking this role on is a challenge I am going to relish. I am particularly looking forward to working in a team which has genuinely exciting goals around launching 4G, overall network leadership and driving the highest standards of customer experience for consumers. Achieving this through our indirect partners is something I can’t wait to get started with.'
