Telecommunications carrier Vertel has appointed its former head of government Tony Hudson as commercial director to lead its sales, marketing and customer experience teams.

The 30-year IT and telecommunications sector veteran joined Vertel in 2016 as head of government and previously worked with Singtel Optus for 15 years, including with eight years in the role of industry manager NSW Government.

Hudson has also worked with IBM and WordFlow Information Liquidity, an Australian start-up, as director of sales.

Theo Belekas, Vertel managing director, said, “Tony brings a unique combination of industry experience, a strong focus on customer success and an understanding of Vertel’s vision of smarter, healthier, and safer Australian communities”.

“Tony will help Vertel continue to service organisations that place significant value on highly-available, reliable and secure network connections, and Quality of Service-enabled managed networks and services, backed by strong networking expertise and support.”

Commenting on his appointment, Hudson said, “Key to Vertel’s service is listening to and understanding our customers and future customers’ needs and goals, even beyond the ICT challenges Vertel respectfully challenges customers’ thoughts around ICT requirements, and makes appropriate recommendations for technology solutions proven to have a positive return on investment”.

“Vertel has a genuine interest in helping our customers achieve their strategic business goals.

“Customers face an increasingly crowded and complex marketplace, with lines blurring between telco and ICT. It can be difficult for customers to navigate digital transformation and consumer experiences, particularly in a landscape defined by data and security concerns, mobile workforces, and technology.

“Many organisations don’t know how to decide on the right types of ICT infrastructure to support their business goals. Vertel wants to help customers take control of this environment with the most appropriate ICT solutions.”
