Allan Packer, founder and existing Director at TheCloud stated, "Daniel is a significant addition to the TheCloud team and we are looking forward to benefitting from his extensive experience in the telecoms industry in two countries and as a channel / wholesale veteran. His skills perfectly match our channel only model."
Packer went on to say, "As a Board, we believe Daniel’s experience will prove invaluable to TheCloud as we launch our suite of Revolution Cloud products, all of which are provided using our purpose built carrier grade platform."
Crespi has a proven track record in the industry, spanning 26 years both in Australia and the UK, 17 of which have been in senior positions in wholesale and channel, and most recently in the UK as Director and shareholder of Telcoinabox Limited. His move to TheCloud is a natural progression for him personally as well as the business, ensuring he remains ahead of the convergence of IT and Telecoms beginning in the reseller world.
"From a personal perspective this is a very exciting progression," Crespi says. "I’m convinced if a telecoms reseller, and indeed any reseller, isn’t seriously considering cloud services in their offering then they won’t be around as convergence of IT and T gathers momentum. To have the opportunity to join the TheCloud at this time and to have such a robust network and product offering for channel partners simply makes sense. TheCloud have an exceptional understanding of end user requirement, to a level I have not seen in the industry before, and this has resulted in TheCloud constantly innovating to turn what would often be seen as commodity products and services into value add offerings, enabling resellers to offer real differentiation."
