VIDEO: Comms pioneer and NetComm CEO David Stewart recognised as Communications Ambassador 2016


NetComm’s CEO and Managing Director, David Stewart, was ‘recognised for his significant and valuable contribution to the Australian communications industry’ at the 10th annual Communications Alliance ACOMM Awards Dinner last night.

The Australian Communications Ambassador award is the highest honour presented by ACOMMS Communications Alliance and CommsDay each year, with previous recipients including former Telstra CEO, David Thodey and former Telstra Group Managing Director, Stuart Lee.

On a personal note, as a user of NetComm products many, many times over the last three decades, including currently, it was an honour to see David Stewart awarded with such a solid accolade at the event last night, as I was there thanks to an invitation by Macquarie Telecom.

John Stanton, CEO, Communications Alliance, presented David Stewart with the prestigious Communications Ambassador award, and said: "He's a man who's been in the industry for more than 30 years. He is somebody who has overseen some of the strongest product and technology innovation in Australia and has always been a great supporter of Australian IT professionals, and of manufacturing.

"He has been, for a period of three decades, a very consistent, strong innovator and contributor to the health of our sector and the creation of jobs in the industry," added Stanton. 

Justin Milne, Chairman, NetComm Wireless said: “David established NetComm Wireless as a leading global developer of Fixed Wireless, wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices, and helped to advance the Australian communications industry through the introduction of a number of first-to-market data communications technologies over three decades.

"Through his longstanding commitment to innovation, David expanded NetComm Wireless into global markets through initiatives impacting a broad range of industry segments including building automation, transportation, mining services and energy management; and bringing city-equivalent broadband to regional, remote and outer urban areas in Australia, the US and Europe with Fixed Wireless.”

David Stewart, CEO and Managing Director, NetComm Wireless said: “These are exciting times for our industry and it is a privilege to have been presented with our industry's top accolade for individual achievement. We have come a very long way since we first began connecting people and machines via dial-up and I am tremendously proud of where NetComm Wireless is today.”
