Azzurri Communications has appointed David Du Toit as Operations Director. He joins Azzurri following two years as Managing Director of Tatis, a South African based systems integrator. Prior to that he was Chief Technology Officer of Datapoint for six years, where he worked alongside Vim Vithaldas, CEO of Datapoint at the time, now CEO of Azzurri.
Du Toit also spent four years at Dimension Data as Director of Customer Interaction Solutions. He built strategic relationships with key technology providers and telecoms carriers, and established one of the UK’s first fixed to mobile services, addressing an Ofcom drive to reduce mobile call costs.
His focus at Azzurri will be on driving process improvements and to ensure Azzurri’s customers consistently receive the highest levels of service quality. As well as leading a team of over 400 Operations and Customer Service staff, Du Toit will work closely with Rufus Grig, Azzurri’s Chief Technology Officer. Together they will ensure Azzurri’s extensive technology and service offerings continue to deliver the greatest possible value to the customer.
Du Toit said: “I’m really excited to be joining a business with so much going for it: Azzurri has one of the most impressive customer lists I’ve seen in the UK ICT sector. I believe it is in this position because of its market-leading offerings across all aspects of the unified communications spectrum – in enterprise mobility, data, fixed voice and contact centres. This gives me a really broad platform upon which to build and enhance Azzurri’s service offerings, and I’m relishing the challenge.”
Vim Vithaldas, CEO, Azzurri Communications, said: “I’m delighted to be working with David again. His track record of formulating service strategies and his operational and technical management abilities are second to none. I’m looking forward to him bringing his high levels of enthusiasm, expertise and drive to Azzurri.”
