Elaine Doherty is to spearhead a £110m project to roll out digital infrastructure in Edinburgh and Stirling.
Her appointment by CityFibre as City Development Manager is part of CityFibre's plan to bring full fibre connectivity to one million UK homes and businesses by 2021 in partnership with Vodafone.
She will be the local point of contact for all city stakeholders and brings more than 25 years experience in the telecoms industry including senior leadership roles at Motorola Global Handsets, Logica and most recently Director of Marketing, Sales and IT for Scottish travel operator Rabbie’s Trail Burners.
“Digital infrastructure is going to play a crucial role in growing Scotland’s economy," said Doherty. “The benefits of full fibre connectivity are massive, not only to businesses but also residents.”
CityFibre Commercial Director Rob Hamlin said: “Elaine ticked all the boxes of what we were looking for in terms of a City Development Manager. Not only does she have first-hand experience of both Edinburgh and Stirling, she also has a wealth of knowledge of the telecoms industry and how it is continuing to evolve.”
