Epsilon, the global connectivity and communications service provider, has appointed Craig Forrester as its CFO, with immediate effect.
Forrester will lead Epsilon’s global finance and legal functions and work alongside recently appointed CEO Michel Robert to drive its business growth globally.
He brings more than two decades of experience to the role having held positions at Colt, BT, Sony and Lucent. With “extensive” international experience in finance and technology, he also joins Epsilon’s executive leadership team to support its renewed focus on growing its software-defined networking service capabilities.
Forrester joins Epsilon from his most recent position at Colt Technology Services, where he spent over four years as VP, Finance – Sales and Marketing. During his tenure, he worked across the organisation with his team to provide business insight focused on supporting the company’s strategic plan. Prior to this, he spent over six years at BT, holding a number of financial management roles across different business units.
Robert said: “Craig has the experience and expertise to help accelerate our new phase of growth. He has been successful in supporting the strategic vision of the companies he worked with, especially in Asia and Europe.
“Craig’s industry experience and knowledge will be invaluable as we take the business forward. We’re glad to have him on the senior leadership team and have huge confidence in his ability in driving our long-term success.”
Forrester added: “Epsilon holds a unique position in the market with its software-driven and customer-centric approach. I was drawn to the business because of its dedication to its innovation in delivering network services as well as the long-term investment in its SDN platform.
“It’s interesting to join a company like Epsilon in a time where interconnection and the demand for bandwidth is growing exponentially. Building on its successes, I look forward to working with the senior management team to bring new growth to Epsilon’s global business.”
