UC industry veteran Stuart McAlpine will lead Olive’s Scottish team

Olive Communications has continued its expansion, with the opening of a hybrid business hub in Scotland.

The move will see the Vodafone dealer scale its regional presence north of the border.

Olive’s Scotland team will be led by business sales director Stuart McAlpine, who boasts over 30-years experience in the UC industry, holding a number of senior roles.

He will be working out of Olive’s regional business hub at Academy Park, while overseeing a team of 12 account managers.

Olive will work closely with its accredited partners Vodafone and Mitel to serve its 2,500 Business and Enterprise customers with a focus on the local market.


North of the border, Olive works with clients including financial services group Scottish Friendly and investment management and financial planning firm Brewin Dolphin.

The dealer provides these partners with cloud services, unified comms and collaboration tools to support their customers.

Commenting on his new role McAlpine said: “Working closely with our partners Mitel and Vodafone we will maintain and build our presence in the markets and continue to develop our strategy of winning and supporting local customers across the UK, providing continuity and accessibility to their account structure at a regional level.

“The expansion of a local sales and engineering base means that we can better serve the Scottish market with a broad portfolio of mobility and Cloud solutions hosted in Olive’s Cloud Managed Service Platform, powered by Vodafone, Mitel, Microsoft & Google Cloud.”

Olive CEO Martin Flick adds: “Events of 2020 have forced businesses to think differently about how they operate and communicate by moving into a different and blended way of working, and our teams will continue to work with customers to create a best of breed plan that delivers for our UK wide customers.”
