Gamma news

Gamma announces new CEO as Bob Falconer retires.

Chief Executive Bob Falconer announces his retirement

“It has been a tremendous privilege to have the opportunity to lead Gamma for fifteen years to the excellent position that the business is in today.”

After 15 years at Gamma, Chief Executive Bob Falconer has informed the Board of his decision to retire at this year’s AGM. The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Taylor as Chief Executive designate. Andrew will join the Board as an executive Director on 4th April and will take over the role of Chief Executive following the conclusion of the AGM on 23rd May 2018.  Bob will remain involved in the business over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition and handover.

Richard Last, Chairman, commented:

“On behalf of the Board, everyone at Gamma and our shareholders, I would like to place on record our thanks to Bob for his leadership and dedication to the Company over the last 15 years. During his time as Chief Executive, Gamma successfully transitioned from a start-up provider of wholesale voice services to become a serious force in the business communications market through the development of market leading products and services. During this period, Gamma also completed its successful IPO on the London Stock Exchange. Bob leaves Gamma in a great position with a very capable senior team and many exciting opportunities ahead.

On a personal level, I would like to thank him for everything he has done while I have been Chairman at Gamma. I have enjoyed working with him immensely and wish him the very best in his future pursuits.

At the same time, I would like to welcome Andrew to the Company. Throughout his career in telecommunications, he has demonstrated the necessary skills and experience to continue the success Gamma has seen to date, and capitalise on the significant market opportunities ahead. We are looking forward to working with him.”

Bob Falconer, Chief Executive Officer, said:

“It has been a tremendous privilege to have had the opportunity to lead Gamma for fifteen years to the excellent position that the business is in today. Having given it much consideration, I had indicated to the board that 2018 was the right year for me to step back from full-time executive responsibilities. I have been really pleased with the support the board has given with this decision and the planning of my succession.

I have real confidence that Andrew will both maintain the momentum of the business and bring fresh skills and experience to bear. Gamma is in great shape, with a strong established management team, a highly experienced board, and a great reputation in the market. The future opportunities for the business are really exciting and I’m looking forward to working with Andrew over the coming months as we smoothly transition responsibilities across.”

Andrew Taylor, Chief Executive designate, added:

“I look forward with great excitement to becoming Chief Executive of Gamma. As someone with significant experience in this industry, I am acutely aware of the strong reputation Gamma has among its customers, channel partners and peers for its innovative products and unrivalled customer service. I will strive to maintain that while continuing the progress the Company has made under Bob’s leadership.” Gamma has among its customers, channel partners and peers for its innovative products and unrivalled customer service. I will strive to maintain that while continuing the progress the Company has made under Bob’s leadership.”

Meet the team

Welcome to Joe, our new Internal Account Manager.

Meet Joe!

We are pleased to announce that Joe Williams has recently joined our team as your Internal Account Manager.

When did you join Gamma? I joined Gamma in February 2016 as an Internal Business Development Manager.

What’s your industry “hot topic”? Building a flexible, resilient solution for customers with a focus on disaster recovery. I still see so many companies without a suitable plan in place. I’m passionate to help them to protect their business and at the same time save money.

What did you do before Gamma? I studied English Literature at Portsmouth University.

What are your hobbies outside of work? Along with being a big football fan, I enjoy skiing, playing golf and I am part of the PC gaming master-crew.

And finally, a little bit about you? I’m originally from Caterham in Surrey but moved to Portsmouth in 2012 for university and have lived here ever since. I drive a Mazda RX8 even though everyone tells me to get rid of it. I’m a Crystal Palace fan and often head to Selhurst Park for what is usually an emotional rollercoaster of a day.

You can contact Joe on 0333 014 0444 or on [email protected]
