Tuesday, April 10th 2018

FluidOne is a business communications provider that supplies to a number of ISPs also. The company is appointing Russell Horton as its new CEO, to replace its outgoing CEO and founder, Piers Daniell, who intends to take up the role of Chairman and be focusing on new emerging tech.


This is the company's second move, in a space of 6 to 7 months, to try to replace its outgoing CEO. In October last year, their former non-executive member, Chris Jagusz, was announced as taking up the role. However, the press release now doesn't mention his name, but has named Russeill Horton.


Russell has earlier served as the CEO of Elite Group and has also previously served in senior positions at Daisy and Vodafone. He should be having a good understanding of the industry and is preparing currently to present his 5-year vision, some time in the coming months.


FluidOne's outgoing CEO, Piers Daniell, said Russell has broad experience including in product development, operations, commercial, general management and project management, having been with companies like Vodafone, Daisy, Elite Group, IP integration, Flexphone and Isis Telecommunications and his own consultancy.


Piers Daniell added that he was delighted that Russel is joining the team, as his team focus, innovative approach, drive, motivation, sector knowledge and strategic leadership stood out for the role in the selection process. He remarked that choosing the right leader is critical to build upon what has been achieved, as FludOne is also being seen as one of the best companies in the UK to work for.
