Walker told Mobile News: “We continue to make huge investment to grow nationally. In terms of people on the ground we are truly national now.

“I’m really excited by the opportunity I’ve been presented, its a great time to be at Redsquid and in the telecoms industry.

“We’re doing lots of exciting things within the business, growing our portfolio, which means we’re taking new services that will differentiate us from the competition.

“We want to open doors and get new propositions out to businesses which, in turn, means the business will grow exponentially.

“My path at Redsquid is the same as the directors; it’s about growing the business and taking the business to £25 million in turnover and staff count to 100 in the next three years.”
