McKinney brings to Cloud Net over 20 years of sales and marketing experience gained within various industries working for a number of blue chip organisations.

David Hill, Chairman of Cloud Net, said: “We have been developing our systems and customer base over the last year or so. This is the stage in our planned development when we take things to the next level. Our plans are ambitious but in the fastest growing sector in the country, with the most advanced VoIP technology and an amazing price point we are set to deliver. Tom joins us to help make this promise a reality. His hands on knowledge and skills developed in similar high profile roles are invaluable.”
