Gradwell Communications appoints John Whitty as Chairman

Bath, UK, September, 2022 – Gradwell Communications Ltd is delighted to announce that John Whitty – former CEO of Air IT and Solar Communications – has been appointed as their new Chairman of the Board. Effective immediately, Whitty succeeds Mark Howling who served as Chairman previously.

Whitty has a vast amount of experience in helping businesses grow exponentially, both organically and by acquisition, which will be vital to support Gradwell’s next phase of development.

“Having admired the business for many years, I’m very pleased to join the Gradwell team. Gradwell has an excellent reputation and heritage in the managed UCaaS space, having offered IP based solutions since inception which makes their offerings extremely relevant to both the direct and partner channel. The business is now ready to take advantage of the recent investments in systems, people and sales capability, and I look forward to expediting this growth”

John Whitty

In his new role with Gradwell, he will help to expand their channel footprint through further development of their channel offering. Following the launch of the Alliance Programme to the channel earlier this year, it is a key strategic initiative for the long-term growth of the business and will benefit greatly from Whitty’s wealth of experience.

“Gradwell has just entered the next exciting phase of our growth plan, and welcoming John to the Board provides us with a good opportunity to maximise our activities in both our channel and inorganic M&A activities”
