Double hire at Community Fibre

London Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) broadband provider Community Fibre has announced the hire of Peter Rampling as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), and Dale Kirkwood as the business’ Chief Information Officer (CIO), as of 1 December.

At Community Fibre, Peter Rampling will be driving further customer growth and leading sales, marketing and customer service for the residential business. Peter has extensive commercial and leadership experience having previously been CCO for Digicel in the Caribbean Region, CCO for Telefonica O2’s consumer business in Germany and as the CMO of O2 UK.

Dale Kirkwood will lead the growth of Community Fibre’s IT and information solutions. Dale has a strong background in sales and field staff environments having worked as global director of IT for the sustainability consultancy, ERM Group.

These executive hires follow the appointment of Tom Robins as Chief Development Officer (CDO) in September. With commercial and strategy experience, Tom has a strong background in growing scale-up businesses. In this new role, he will support the business’ expansion in delivering more wayleaves, growing its B2B customer base and identifying new business opportunities. Tom works with wholesale providers, mobile network operators, and business partners such as Glemnet to help them make the most of Community Fibre’s network.

Graeme Oxby, CEO of Community Fibre, added: “We are very pleased to welcome Peter and Dale to Community Fibre. Their diverse and global experience in the IT and telecoms market will no doubt prove invaluable to the business, especially as we look to expand our full-fibre network in London and accelerate company growth.
