His previous role was head of sales- M2M and IoT Connectivity at BT
Cellhire has hired former BT employee Duncan Griffiths for the newly created role of Head of Sales- M2M & IoT Connectivity.
He has 35 years experience in mobile, including 10 years at BT in the head of sales position where he worked with various MNO’s and service providers while developing an understanding of the M2M and IoT connectivity market.
Griffiths responsibilities include leading the M2M and IoT sales focus for Cellhire in the UK and across Europe to drive strategic growth, and help shape business identity and bring new products and solutions to market.
Griffiths said: “Cellhire’s capability aligns to what customers demand in deploying critical M2M and IoT solutions, including technology and network choices on a local and global basis.
“With my deep and extensive experience in the market, I’m looking forward to shaping Cellhire’s M2M and IoT sales strategy, and further advancing the company as a global M2M and IoT mobile data specialist.”
Cellhire Group CEO Martyn Stevens added: “The M2M and IoT space in telecoms continues to grow rapidly. And with 2G/3G sunsetting, PSTN switch off and continued 5G rollouts, the opportunities will open up even further as businesses look for a connectivity upgrade path.
Duncan’s specialist knowledge will support the business globally, but his main focus and remit is to drive sales in the UK, France and across Europe.
