He comes with almost three decades of experience in the Channel, including spells at Ikon Office Solutions and ISC, before handling software and IT sales at Arena Group. Prior to joining Snom, he was an account manager at The Technology Group.

“I’m excited to contribute to the growth that’s already been achieved by the Snom UK team as we look to make Snom the brand of choice for IP telephony,” he said.
