Rundle Assumes Leadership Role at Gigaclear

A leadership transition at Gigaclear will see Gareth Williams, currently CEO of the business organisation, replaced by Nathan Rundle starting in April.

Back in 2018, Rundle began working for the altnet and, for the three years since, has been the COO. Prior to this, Nathan held high-up roles with BT/Openreach.

His appointment represents the completion of what they call “phase one”, which is delivering build targets. Now, they enter “Phase two” which will see the ISP focus on acquiring customers against their RFS.

Currently, Gigaclear passes over 500k rural properties, 100K of which are paying customers. This is already an impressive uptake on their network (compared to other “altnets”). Its clear Gigaclear has the formula right when it comes to connecting customers on their footprint!

Also, to add – CFO Ian Wade will depart from the business within the same timeframe. Paul Evans, presently serving as Financial Director, will assume leadership of the company in its next growth phase. An external search for Ian’s long-term successor has commenced.

Stephen Nelson, Chair of Gigaclear, added the following comments – “Both Ian and Gareth have played a key role in architecting our plans for future growth. They leave behind a business that has been transformed, from an early stage participant, into the leading rural fibre to the home operator. In Nathan, who has been the architect of the company’s construction and roll-out capability over the same period, we have the natural and planned successor as CEO.”

Gareth Williams said: “We have achieved a great deal and now is a natural time to move on. He will remain as an advisor to the business until the end of June 2024 to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities.”.

We’re excited to watch the growth continue!
