Gamma founder to lead buy-and-build strategy

B2B communications provider Bluebell Telecom has announced the appointment of Gamma Telecom founder Paul Banner to its board as Non-Executive Chairman.

Banner will be responsible for overseeing Bluebell’s growth strategy and specialises in buy-and-build acquisitions. This complements the company’s current strategy, which aims to achieve growth by acquiring profitable and successful businesses which add value to the Bluebell proposition as a whole.

Banner has been in the private equity sector for over 20 years and entered the telecoms market in 2001, co-founding Gamma Telecom. Within the first four years of launch the company had sales totalling £100 million. Paul was also responsible for founding Epsilon Telecommunications in 2006.

Banner said of his new appointment, “Through a concerted and strategic buy-and-build approach, I expect Bluebell to grow at a significant pace over the next two years. The company has a strong leadership team, the right approach and the backing of top-tier financers, all of which are set to contribute to impressive sustainable growth. I am pleased to be back in the industry and working alongside the Bluebell team.”

Bluebell Director, Mick Crosthwaite, said: “Our sharp focus on simplifying communications coupled with the expertise Paul brings gives me the confidence that we will continue to grow and become a strong force in business telecommunications. Our business is evolving and we will continue to seek out businesses that bring Bluebell an extra edge against the competition.”
