Vodafone reshuffles UK enterprise team


Industry veterans David Langhorn and Mick Wayman join to strengthen network’s drive within its large corporate business and private sector operations 

Vodafone has strengthened its UK enterprise team with the appointment of two new senior executives.

David Langhorn has joined as head of large and corporate businesses. He will be supporting UK businesses to help make the best use of the operator’s converged communications services and is also leading a project to expand his team of sales and account managers.

He had spent more than 14 years at US operator AT&T, the last seven of which were spent as UK and Ireland senior vice president within its Global Services division.

Mick Wayman has joined as head of sales within Vodafone’s UK enterprise business, where he will specifically head up the company’s operations within the public sector.

He joins from O2, where he was head of sales for public sector business for 18 months. Wayman also had a 24 year stint at BT, the last 14 of which were within its Wholesale division, where he held several senior roles including managing director for the London 2012 Olympics Programme.

Langhorn and Wayman join Jonathan Kini and Nick Birtwistle, who look after smaller businesses and partners respectively. Kini, who has been enterprise sales director since October, heads up Vodafone’s small business and SME team while SME sales director Birtwistle is responsible for elements including Vodafone Partner Services (VPS).

In addition, Matt Key has now moved to a global enterprise role as director of M2M, with Langhorn and Wayman combining to fill his previous UK role.

Key, who was previously managing director of enterprise at Cable & Wireless before its sale to Vodafone for £1 billion in April 2012, became Vodafone’s head of large sales in January 2013, responsible for mobile and fixed line sales to large businesses.
