Gary Lamb has now begun his new role as Manx Telecom’s chief executive officer.
The company’s former finance director was announced as the new CEO at the end of May but did not take up the role until last Wednesday (July 1).
Gary joined Manx Telecom as finance director in October 2011 and has been instrumental in the company’s development since then.
Prior to joining the communication solutions provider, he held a diverse range of senior roles and has spent 20 years working in the Isle of Man operating within the local business community and internationally.
Gary said: ‘I am delighted to take up the role as chief executive officer at an exciting time in the company’s evolution.
‘We have a great team of people working for the company and together we will continue to serve our valued customers and support the Isle of Man Government to attract new business to the island.
‘We look forward to growing the company on the island, continuing to support the local community, and using our leading technology and skilled workforce to expand our business off-island.’
He takes over as CEO from Mike Dee who had held the post since 2011.
The company has commenced recruitment for a new chief financial officer and shareholders will be updated in due course.
Paul Tierney has been appointed as interim chief financial officer with effect from June 22.
Paul is a professional interim CFO with 14 years’ experience of senior interim finance positions.
Most recently he has held senior short-term roles at Lantmannen Unibake UK, a privately-held bakery products manufacturer, One Fifty One Plc, a €300million energy and environment investment company, and Hearst Magazines UK, one of the country’s leading media companies with 20 magazine brands and 20 digital assets.
