Colt Technology Services confirms the appointment of Mirko Voltolini as vice president of strategy and innovation.

In this newly created role, Voltolini will support Colt’s product capabilities with the latest emerging technologies and innovations to ensure Colt’s position as an industry leader. Beyond just products and technology, Voltolini and his team will help to define and drive the execution of Colt’s broader company strategy.

“Mirko has always been someone in our business who constantly seeks to share his wealth of technical expertise, in order to drive Colt forward,” said Keri Gilder, CEO of Colt.

“I am thrilled to elevate him into this new role so he can continue to pair up his knowledge of innovative technologies and his knowledge of Colt to allow us to continue to transform our organisation.”

Prior to this appointment, Voltolini served as head of network on demand, overseeing the development of on-demand platform, as well as driving the development and delivery of its online digital customer experience offering.

In addition, Voltolini also sits on the MEF board, where he works with the wider industry to define today’s network communication standards.

“I feel very privileged to be taking on this new role. Seeing both Colt and the industry evolve and innovate has been something I have always been passionate about, and I feel this next period will be particularly exciting for our sector,” said Voltolini.

“The way Keri has structured our organisation primes us to be ready to assist enterprises as they prepare for their next wave of growth, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”
