Simon Wort joins ITS Technology Group as Chief Revenue Officer
Organisational change prepares ITS for next stage of growth.
Wholesale full fibre provider ITS Technology Group (ITS) has announced the appointment of Simon Wort as Chief Revenue Officer, a newly created position with responsibility for its go-to-market functions, including marketing, sales, and business development.
Reporting into CEO Daren Baythorpe, Wort joins ITS from Arrow Business Communications where he was Chief Commercial Officer having navigated the business through significant revenue expansion, investment, and a series of acquisitions.
ITS has consistently doubled revenues year on year and made its first strategic acquisition late in 2022 to bolster its dark fibre capabilities. In the last 12 months ITS has doubled its own full fibre footprint known as Faster Britain in the marketplace with particular focus on the North and North West, Midlands and London. As a result of this growth, it has also increased headcount, making a number of key appointments around delivery, customer service, product, and sales.
Wort’s appointment is the result of an organisational change to place further focus on revenue generating activity with heads of marketing, channel, infrastructure as well as recently appointed head of public sector, Andrew Bell becoming his direct reports.
“I am delighted to welcome Simon to the team. As a business we have invested heavily in increasing our delivery capabilities to rollout full fibre where our partners need access for their end-users. Simon’s experience and ‘people first’ approach will bring a lot to the table. I am excited to see how he will drive further value into our go-to-market strategy and roadmap, while aligning us for our next stage of growth.”Daren Baythorpe, CEO at ITS
“ITS’ commitment to people, partners, innovation, and market excellence align perfectly with my own values. It has built a powerful wholesale business connectivity proposition and I am excited to join at a pivotal time as it continues to scale at pace. I am looking forward to working with the team to build on our Faster Britain brand, market-leading partner portal, and customer experience.”Simon Wort, Chief Revenue Officer at ITS
