Former O2, WebEx and Cable & Wireless Global manager charged with developing and maintaining alignment with company’s partners
Vodafone Platinum Partner Olive Communications has appointed Wreford Miles to the newly created role of strategic partnerships director.
He is charged with working within Olive’s management team to develop and maintain alignment with the company’s strategic partners.
Miles (pictured) joins from O2, where he was business manager for enterprise channels practice for nine years. Prior to that, he held a business development role within EMEA for WebEx for more than three years and business development director within Cable & Wireless Global’s UK and Ireland division for two years.
The appointment comes after Olive, which employs 160 people across offices in Hugh Wycombe, Weybridge and Towcester, was named Vodafone Platinum Partner of the Year in July.
Olive CEO Martin Flick said: “Our strategic partnerships with organisations like Vodafone, Mitel, O2 and others are really important. As technology develops and large organisations expand their portfolio to encompass Cloud and Hosted solutions that include infrastructure, connectivity and applications customers will want to reap the benefits with solutions that are industrialised but that are also relevant and in proximity to their needs.
“Having Wreford focused on developing these partnerships will help ensure Olive remains at the forefront of bridging the gap in helping our best of breed global providers in meeting specific customer needs.”
