Telcoinabox New Zealand on track for expansion with Auckland office opening and two new appointments

Telecommunications wholesaler and franchisor, Telcoinabox New Zealand has opened a new office in Auckland this month to support their current growth and prepare for further business expansion.

With this opening come two new appointments, ex-TelstraClear Wholesale account director, Greg Theron, as business manager and telecommunications entrepreneur and deputy chair/vice president for CanTeen New Zealand, Guy Alexander, as business development executive.

“We are now ready for our next phase of growth to build upon our current success. By adding to the team with strong industry experience and practical hands on knowhow puts us in an advantageous position to further expand into the New Zealand market,” says Telcoinabox New Zealand CEO, Shannon Fisher.  

“Enquiries to become a Telcoinabox service provider are pouring in thick and fast and in two-months we have already signed ten new service providers.

“If we continue to grow at this pace we could potentially become the largest telecommunications aggregator in New Zealand which would be a phenomenal achievement.”

Greg Theron has over 11 years experience in the telecommunications industry and joined Telcoinabox because of the simplified business model.

“Telcoinabox for me has it all. It’s set up for success. After years of talking about developing systems with other industry players and then finding a business that has done it, is incredible.

“Telcoinabox is the only telecommunications company that hides the complexity of the industry and simplifies the infrastructure.”

Greg and Guy joined the company this week and have been at the Australian and New Zealand Operations Centre (ANZOC) in Sydney for training.

Greg will be in charge of setting up the service providers on the Telcoinabox network, ensuring they are executing their business plans and achieving their goals and Guy will lead the marketing of new recruitment.

Within two years Guy built a telecommunications company from nothing and sold it to an NZX listed company. CEO Shannon Fisher believes Guy’s savvy and contagious enthusiasm will be a positive influence for potential service providers. 

“My goal this year is to sign on 20 new service providers by the end of the year. Based on the number of enquiries pouring in we are definitely on track to meet it,” says Guy Alexander.

Shannon is particularly excited about the future but would like to continue to see more female interest.

“We recently signed a mother and son team. They joined because it gives them the freedom to juggle family with business and manage their work life balance at their own pace. This is the perfect combination for most women and our aim is to help more women see that they can have the cake and eat it too.”

Greg and Guy will be full-time and based at the new Takapuna office.
