ZipTel has appointed a former mobile industry senior executive as head of sales and distribution to lead the expansion of the company’s sales and distribution channels for its international pre-paid travel sim card, AussieSim.

AussieSim co-founder and  ZipTel (ASX:ZIP) Executive Director Keaton Wallace said Alun Cooksley, formerly with 3 Mobile and Vodafone, would lead an “aggressive rollout” of sales and distribution channels across Australia for the AussieSim brand.

“This is a crucial and exciting appointment for ZipTel as we look to fast track our distribution footprint into retail points of presence throughout Australia for our AussieSim product,” Wallace said.

“Alun has an excellent and proven track record in developing relationships and distribution agreements with Australia’s largest retail chains which have resulted in him achieving award winning results.

“With an extensive retail sales career in the telecommunications sector, particularly focused on driving distribution growth, we are delighted to have Alun on board and look forward to him significantly contributing towards our aggressive rollout of sales and distribution channels across Australia for our AussieSim brand.”

Wallace said Cooksley will be responsible for creating new distribution channels to market the AussieSim brand and introduce emerging growth opportunities for the product.

“Alun has an extensive and proven track record for delivering significant sales growth in the telecommunications industry over the past decade. With AussieSim showing impressive signs of growth, this appointment is one of the first key initiatives undertaken by the Company to drive its retail distribution presence, brand awareness and sales.”
