Elitetele.com acquired a data centre in 2014 to transform itself from a switch-less reseller to a full ISP

Elitetele.com has recruited Simon Smith as its first head of cloud sales. Operating from its London office, Smith will expand Elitetele.com’s cloud services, launching a series of new offerings this year.

Cloud DistributionThe new hire builds on Elitetele.com’s acquisition of a data centre in 2014, a move that completed the company’s transition from a switch-less reseller to a full ISP with carrier capabilities and multiple data centre facilities.

With the acquisition, Elite officially launched a full range of data centre services, including managed firewalls, unified threat management, co-location and its very own hosted PBX, Elite Plus Talk, which is embedded within its own core MPLS Network.

Smith said: “Cloud is an area many organisations still struggle with and Elitetele.com has a successful track record in understanding its customers’ issues and providing quality solutions underpinned by great products.”

Matt Newing, CEO of Elitetele.com, said: Simon’s knowledge and experience of this space will help us offer existing customers and new prospects the best solutions for their needs. With over a quarter of our customers using three or more of our services, we’re in an incredibly strong position to build on this with our new cloud offerings launching later this year.”
