Proximity Communications has invited Dan Davies, currently Principal Consultant at the Company, to join the Board of Directors and to take on new key roles to support further growth. Dan Davies joins the current Board of five, and will take on the position of Product and Solutions Director. The move follows a successful year in 2012 for the organisation, with a 23% growth in turnover, compared to the previous year.
Davies will continue in his current role across client engagement and pre-sales management and will now also focus increasingly on product and solutions strategy for existing vendor partners. In addition to Davies’ new role and Board appointment, Roberto Casula, Chief Technology Officer, and Board Member, takes on further strategic duties including developing the new vendor portfolio strategy. Davies has been at the Company for 12 years and Casula has worked with the Company since it was founded 13 years ago.
Darren Boyce, CEO, Proximity Communications, says: “I am delighted to be welcoming Dan Davies to the Board, and know he will make a significant contribution to the further future growth of Proximity. I have personally worked with Dan for a number of years and know his hard work, innovation and drive, along with his technical and commercial knowledge, will greatly enhance what the Board is able to bring to the Company.
We have made some key senior appointments in the past 2 years, and have also made a number of strategic decisions about our vendor portfolio and where we need to be operating and contributing to in the solutions and services space. The opening of our Network Operations Centre (NOC) earlier this year is evidence of our commitment to developing our offering and pushing the opportunities further. We need to be able to rely on the loyalty and commitment of our people and the responsible management of the Company at all levels. The new Board structure will enable us to strengthen our current offering further, whilst also continuing to look at new ways to differentiate and innovate.”
Dan Davies, Product and Solutions Director, Proximity Communications, says: “It’s an honour to have been selected to join the Board at Proximity, especially at a time when we are seeing such consistent growth and success. The new opportunities and areas for development that have been assigned to me personally are also recognition of the work and commitment that I have given the Company. I look forward to many more years at Proximity!”
