Jurassic Fibre appoints new CCO

Southwest broadband provider Jurassic Fibre has announced the appointment of Steve Garrood as chief commercial officer.

Garrood (pictured) has previously held positions at T Mobile, Telefonica and Telewest, joining with over 20 years of sales and marketing experience for network operators in FTTx, FTTC and FTTP networks; mobile telecommunications; and IoT solutions.

Most recently, he was CCO for a Field Force Automation product involving preparing the start-up company for launch from incubation into the global marketplace. Before this, he was CCO for a London-based company offering a SaaS based surveillance and compliance platform. 

In his role at Jurassic Fibre, Garrood will be responsible for driving profitable growth in sales from both residential and business customers whilst building the brand in the Southwest and nationally, coordinating sales and marketing efforts.

Commenting on the appointment, Garrood said: “Opportunities like Jurassic Fibre don’t come along every day. Having the chance to help define our mission and be part of the company journey is not only a massive challenge, but a career defining role.”

Jurassic Fibre’s CEO and founder Michael Maltby said that the timing of Garrood’s appointment ‘couldn’t be better’, with the company extending its network to more locations across the South West. 

“Steve will play a crucial role within the commercial team as our build gathers momentum,” said Maltby. “With his wealth of experience in telecommunications, he will be well-placed to help shape the direction of our business going forward.”
