Epsilon has appointed Craig Forrester (pictured) as its new chief financial officer, effective immediately.

In his new role, Forrester will lead Epsilon’s global finance and legal functions and work alongside Michel Robert who was recently appointed CEO, to drive its business growth globally.

Robert succeeds co-founder and former CEO Jerzy Szlosarek, who stepped down after 16 years with Epsilon.

“Craig has the experience and expertise to help accelerate our new phase of growth. He has been successful in supporting the strategic vision of the companies he worked with, especially in Asia and Europe.”

Craig’s industry experience and knowledge will be invaluable as we take the business forward,” said Robert. “We’re glad to have him on the senior leadership team and have huge confidence in his ability in driving our long-term success.”

Forrester enters the role with more than 20 years’ experience having held positions at Colt, BT, Sony and Lucent.

He joins the company’s executive leadership team to support its renewed focus on growing its software-defined networking service capabilities. 

“Epsilon holds a unique position in the market with its software-driven and customer-centric approach. I was drawn to the business because of its dedication to its innovation in delivering network services as well as the long-term investment in its SDN platform,” said Craig Forrester, chief financial officer at Epsilon.

“It’s interesting to join a company like Epsilon in a time where interconnection and the demand for bandwidth is growing exponentially. Building on its successes, I look forward to working with the senior management team to bring new growth to Epsilon’s global business.”

During his 4 years at Colt, Forrester worked across the organisation with his team to provide business insight focused on supporting the company’s strategic plan.

Prior to this, he spent over six years at BT, holding a number of financial management roles across different business units.
