Ballinger Departure Confirmed

Following new that Paul Ballinger was set to leave Alcatel, Peter Tebbutt, marketing director at the company has confirmed the move.

"I can confirm that Paul Ballinger, Alcatel's long-standing sales director, will sadly be leaving the company, but not until the end of September. Graeme Allan, country director for UK and Ireland, will increase his sales-related activities during the transition and after September.

Alcatel has an excellent opportunity for further growth in the second half of 2006 and the management team will be more involved in the progression of larger sales opportunities in the months ahead.

Paul has achieved much success in his many years at Alcatel, and the company hopes to work with him in the enterprise communications industry in future."
