Superloop has appointed the former Vocus general manager of wholesale, Dan Whitford, as general manager of strategic sales.
The Asia-Pacific network and digital service provider has appointed the industry veteran to drive strategic capacity sales in the Asia-Pacific region. Whitford joins Superloop from Vocus Communications, where he held the position of general manager of wholesale, managing 40 people across three different sales teams, and is set to play an instrumental role in driving key strategic deals and opportunities for the Superloop Group.
“This is an incredibly exciting time to be joining Superloop and the market is now getting a greater appreciation of Superloop’s unique position as one of Asia’s leading telecommunications infrastructure owners. I cannot wait to leverage my knowledge and experience to drive sales and increase utilisation of this very unique asset,” said Whitford.
Whitford’s appointment reunites him with Matt Hollis, group general manager, sales and marketing and executive director of Superloop, who he worked with at Vocus Communications. Whitford will report to Mr Hollis.
“We are delighted to have Mr Whitford join the team, Dan has such a proven track record in the wholesale telecommunications space, and in particular major strategic deals,” said Hollis.
Bevan Slattery, Superloop founder and CEO, said he was ‘incredibly excited’ that Whitford was joining the company’s expanding operations and that it was further evidence of our commitment to build one of the most experienced sales leadership teams in the Asia-Pacific telecommunications market.
