Connectivity and IT infrastructure solutions provider for the financial services industry, Avelacom, announced today that it has promoted Vincent Harrison to Managing Director, Global Sales, to drive business growth and further develop Avelacom’s low latency network across the Americas, EMEA and APAC.
Harrison will now be reporting directly to Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom, and will be responsible for establishing and maintaining relationships with key clients in the US.
He will also develop new services to support expansion into new markets such as Brazil and Mexico, where the need for low latency solutions is growing, as a result of increased interest from institutions connecting to these regions.
Prior to Avelacom, Harrison worked in several telecommunications companies including six years at Perseus Telecom (now GTT).
Vincent brings great experience in low latency solutions for capital markets in the Americas, not only from a sales perspective but also in building alternative low latency routes to Mexico and LATAM markets in particular. This matches perfectly with our strategy to expand our network into new hot growth markets and attract new clients by providing them with outstanding connectivity and Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions,” said Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom.
I’m excited to continue being a part of the Avelacom team, one of the fastest growing companies in today’s telecom landscape. I firmly believe Avelacom’s global presence, own fiber network and wide portfolio of low latency solutions positions it well to become the number one choice for capital markets firms,” Harrison commented.
