Abzorb appoints ex-Vodafone veteran Matt Dykes

Former Vodafone and O2 Head of ISP, Matt Dykes, joins multi-million-pound telecoms business Abzorb Systems as Chief Commercial Officer as the company bolsters its senior team following record growth in 2018.

Matt joins following a 20-year career in the wholesale telecoms industry at Vodafone and O2. He brings an in-depth knowledge of the channel and strong relationships with the networks to Abzorb.

Matt said: “This is a hugely exciting time to join Abzorb. The company has consistently posted double digit growth over the past three years and my goal is to make sure this organic expansion continues.

“The business has set a strong foundation for growth. We are now scaling up our technology roadmap to drive the pace of change for an industry that will soon be characterised by 5G, AI and data-driven decision making.

“The hosted telecoms technology and customer-centric approach at Abzorb is in their DNA and my goal is to transform the company from a commercial perspective.

“The opportunities to grow around our network-agnostic mobile offering and replace legacy systems architecture with cloud-based technology is huge. Our product roadmap reflects this and we are looking forward to launching exciting new products and services throughout 2019 and beyond.”

Abzorb founder Steve Beeby, said: “I’ve known Matt for many years and the synergies between us are clear. During his time at Vodafone and O2, Matt led the transformation of the whole channel by streamlining resources and implementing strategies to drive business growth.

“Matt is well respected throughout the industry. He brings his ambition, a solid commercial track record and strong relationships to help shape the future of Abzorb at this time of rapid growth.

“We have an exciting pipeline of new product and service propositions to bring to the market and Matt will be instrumental in driving through these innovations.

“Last year, for example, we launched the innovative CapZ service, which allows businesses to control their telecoms expenditure in line with Ofcom’s bill cap legislation. This is out-performing our expectations and we have exciting new roll-outs coming soon.

“We are looking forward to securing a strong future while sticking to our core value of building technology solutions in telecoms that make it easier for our customers to do business better.”
