Alongside the recent appointment of Rob Merrick (Business Development Manager – Broadband Products) to grow sales of LTE broadband products, Derek will help support critical communications users to deploy Sepura's powerful, flexible solutions.

"We are really pleased to have added Derek’s experience to our global Sales team. The sale of Sepura to Epiris has allowed us to look at markets that we know are significant areas of growth for critical communications. This includes new metros, airports and other transport infrastructure, utilities and oil and gas plants, and of course with our core market in public safety. Derek will be crucial to building relationships with partners in these regions and growing our customer base around the world.”
