Azzurri Communications has appointed Brendan Lynch as its new sales director. Lynch joins Azzurri from Eircom, where he was working as a consultant to the CEO in Ireland.
Lynch replaces Craig Wellman who moved to Virgin Media Business in June this year to take on the role of director of enterprise and network services.
Azzurri said Lynch brings extensive experience in telecoms both in the UK and internationally. Lynch’s previous post, before taking his consulting role at Eircom, was as director of business and partner markets at Virgin Media Business, where he was part of the senior leadership team. His responsibilities included developing and executing the company’s sales strategy and driving growth across both enterprise and wholesale markets.
Azzurri CEO Chris Jagusz said: ‘We are delighted that Brendan Lynch is joining us as Sales Director to help us drive forward our plans for the next stage in Azzurri’s growth. His industry knowledge and insight will be invaluable in helping us to further solidify our position as the leading independent provider of innovative communications services to the UK enterprise market. We’re delighted to welcome a sales leader of his calibre to the team.’
Lynch said: ‘I’m really excited to be joining a business with so much potential: I believe that Azzurri has everything in place to succeed - an outstanding base of customers, a market leading proposition and a team of highly motivated and highly skilled people.
‘Azzurri is well positioned to help our customers address their business challenges by effectively exploiting the latest technology developments while managing and reducing their costs, and I’m relishing the opportunity to get started.’
