Colt Technology Services, a provider of network and communications services for trading groups, has strengthened its management team with the addition of Stephanie Lynch-Habib as its newest Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). She will step into the new role at the beginning of December, per a company statement.
Ms. Lynch-Habib will maintain a central role to Colt’s business, which provides high bandwidth services to enterprise and wholesale businesses in hubs in Europe and Asia. In this capacity she will be reporting to Colt’s Chief Commercial Officer, Tom Regent. Her mandate will be to help define and execute Colt’s overall marketing strategy, whilst pursuing an overall customer-centric, go-to-market plan.
More specifically, under her direction, Colt’s strategy will foster the evolution of the company brand both in terms of market penetration and as a high-bandwidth leader. She will be based out of Paris and she brings with her over two decades of experience in the telecommunications industry, the majority of her time being relegated to Europe.
She most recently worked as the Head of Specialty and Professional Service Sales – Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) with Level 3 Communications. Prior to this role she also held multiple positions at AT&T including stints as its Global Marketing Director, Sales VP EMEA North and Sales VP IoT and Strategic Solutions EMEA, among others.
According to Ms. Lynch-Habib in a recent statement on the appointment: “I look forward to taking a key role in the execution of Colt’s bold new strategy. I believe in the potential for Colt as a disruptive influence and industry leader in terms of high-bandwidth networking and customer experience. But you can only be successful if the teams behind you are the very best, and I recognise a strong leadership and company culture at Colt, which I am keen to be a part of.”
“Colt has the best assets in the industry, second to none, and is implementing a bold new strategy to tap into the demand for mission critical high bandwidth across Europe and Asia. I am excited to welcome Stephanie as part of the team who will drive this transformation,” reiterated Mr. Regent, in an accompanying statement.
