Flomatik appoints accomplished leader to help drive international growth plans
Having spent nearly two decades leading teams and transforming service offerings at organisations including Oracle, Vodafone, ECI Telecoms and Energis, Ben has supported these companies, and others, to build on their international presence, improve efficiency, and boost ROI.
His appointment as director of sales and marketing further strengthens the experience of Flomatik’s Executive Steering Group (ESG) – the business’s senior leadership team which has put in place a strategy to take the organisation to the next phase of its development.
Speaking about his new role, Ben commented: “It’s my mission to help our company grow even further and diversify our already impactful offering. We want to both continue supporting traditional telecoms and altnet disruptors, but also become the go-to network services provider in the power, water, road and rail sectors.
“We’re entering an exciting phase of Flomatik’s evolution and it’s important that we’re proactively driving change in the market. Our passion, motivation and expertise will help us to get to where we want to be, and I’m looking forward to playing a part in driving us there.”
Following a transformative 2021 for Birmingham-based Flomatik – which included the appointment of Dean Checkley as its new CEO and year-on-year market growth in the altnet sector – the company’s upward trajectory has continued into this year with a positive start, including two new customer wins in January.
Commenting on Ben’s appointment, CEO Dean said: “Ben’s persona, professionalism and personality exudes throughout, and colleagues and clients are always drawn to him.
“The complementary characteristics he brings to the ESG are phenomenal, and his passion will prove pivotal for how we amplify our specialist services and build on our progressive culture.”
On the company’s direction, Dean added: “We ended 2021 in a position of strength amid a backdrop of transformation and market sector volatility. Our team’s hard work and loyalty has laid the right foundations for what we have set our sights on for 2022 and beyond.
“Core to achieving Flomatik’s business goals are our people, the value for money we offer, how we grow and diversify throughout the UK and Europe, and maintaining a laser-beam focus on hitting our financial targets.”
