ITS Appoint Big Hitters to Help their UK Full Fibre Rollout Plans

The ITS Technology Group (its.), which operates a number of fibre optic and hybrid wireless broadband ISP networks across parts of the UK (usually via wholesale), has appointed two big names to help support their “full fibre” deployment strategy – Mike Goodwin and Darren Shenkin.

Mike Goodwin joins from CityFibre’s Fibre Nation division and will be appointed to be the Head of Network Architecture and Operations at ITS, which gives him responsibility for both designing and assuring their network infrastructure.

Meanwhile Darren Shenkin, who has been appointed to become the provider’s new Director of Strategy & Innovation, has previously held senior posts at Hyperoptic, CommunityFibre, Plusnet and BT.

As part of its recruitment drive, ITS has also increased its partner development and technical teams, including more fibre designers and planners.

Daren Baythorpe, CEO of ITS ,said:

“It is a very exciting time for ITS as we continue to deliver full fibre infrastructure where it is needed working closely with our partner community. Having the right people driving this is vital.

I am thrilled that Mike Goodwin and Darren Shenkin have joined us, and their respective experience will add immense value to ITS when time is of the essence in this race to a gigabit capable UK to fulfil the government’s 2025 ambitions.”

All of this should help to complement the company’s recent funding boost of £45m from Aviva Investors, which will see them working to cover 200,000 homes and businesses over the next few years (here). The operator has recently completed a 21km full fibre network serving businesses in Greenwich (London) and has also continued to extend its “Faster Britain” network footprint across Blackpool, Bristol, Nottingham, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Tameside, Manchester.
