Network Services Provider Flomatik has appointed Dean Checkley as CEO.
With a background in the telecoms industry, Dean brings 45 years’ experience to Hampshire-headquartered Flomatik – a firm where he previously served as its chief delivery officer.
Formerly an interim managing director for Rural Optic – part of Airband Community Internet – as well as The Law Society’s head of shared services and IT operations, and a director of service and operations with Virgin Media Business WiFi, Dean has a strong background in senior management across both public and private sectors.
Flomatik recently won major projects with Virgin Media and the ISP Alternative Network Providers sector. Forecasting to have 540,000 homes designed by the end of 2021, the team also has ambitions to continue its year-on-year Altnet productivity growth by 10%.
Speaking about his new role, Dean said: “The minute I joined Flomatik, I fell in love with the business. The tenacity, resilience and commitment to the customer I saw in our colleagues was phenomenal – I was invested in the company from day one.
“It’s important we’re seen as an organisation that’s transparent and delivers on our promises. The ESG will play a pivotal role in ensuring that we continue to work hard behind the scenes to develop our people, systems and culture.”
Referring to the 2021 challenges for the telecoms industry, Dean added: “There’s no doubt every industry has experienced a difficult time throughout the pandemic, but it’s also paved the way for some really exciting developments to come to the fore.
“Our sector continues to play a pivotal role in the ongoing recovery and doing everything we can to keep the nation connected will be key to moving beyond the crisis.”
Chairman Kevin Barrie added: “Dean is a collaborative leader who brings a wealth of experience to the boardroom, our customers and workforce as a whole.
“His strategic focus and ability to build sustainable business relationships means Flomatik can continue to build into a more forward-thinking, transparent company that’s bursting with leaders and telecoms specialists.”
