Rural broadband provider Voneus Broadband has appointed Francesca Lee as its new chief commercial officer (CCO).
Lee possesses 18 years of experience in the telecoms sector with senior commercial roles at Virgin Media and BT Consumer where she launched many large-scale projects such as BT Sport and Netflix on BT TV.
In her previous role at BT Enterprise, she also negotiated key strategic partnerships with Microsoft, Samsung, and RingCentral.
