Timico, a provider of converged communication services to the business market, has announced two new appointments which will boost the company’s channel presence and its reach into the UK marketplace. Commencing immediately, Stuart Bell takes the newly created role of the Head of Indirect Sales, Telecoms and IP and Teresa Warwick becomes Channel Manager for Mobile Business Partners.
In his new position, Stuart will be responsible for running Timico’s telecoms and IP indirect channels and developing the company’s presence in the telecoms reseller and PBX dealer market. He will report directly to Chris Tombs, Timico Chief Executive and will be looking to expand his team of channel sales managers. Stuart joins Timico from NEC/Philips where he was Head of the UK Channel for the PBX business. His nineteen years’ experience in telecoms, the last eight of them working for large PBX manufacturers, positioned Stuart in the forefront of the IP revolution.
Teresa Warwick will be reporting to Iain Sinnott, Head of Timico’s indirect mobile channel. As Channel Manager, she will be responsible for developing the company’s Business Partner relationships in the Midlands region. Teresa brings to her new position twelve years in the mobile industry joining Timico from Avenir Telecom where she was a Senior Business Development Manager.
“The key to successful converged communications is being able to offer all forms of connectivity and Timico is currently the only UK supplier able to offer business-grade converged communications in the marketplace. This is an exciting time to be introducing IP resellers and telecoms VARs to Timico solutions and educating them about the benefits of true connectivity across IP, mobile and fixed communications,” says Stuart Bell.
“I am pleased to be joining the Timico team with its strong customer service ethos and highly experienced people,” says Teresa Warwick. “I am looking forward to introducing Timico’s excellent converged communications proposition to its existing and new mobile business partners across the Midlands.”
Chris Tombs, Chief Executive at Timico, comments: “Both Stuart’s and Teresa’s experience will be invaluable in their new roles. With Stuart on board we now have a telecoms/IP specialist heading-up our indirect channel, which complements the specialists on our indirect mobile team. I am confident that with two indirect teams focussed on what are very different channels, we will be able to maximise the value of the business that we achieve with our partners.”
