We are delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Carr to the position of Managing Director of CAM’s Australian company, Cellular Asset Management Pty Ltd.
The appointment has arisen as the current Managing Director, Peter Bridgman wishes to return to his UK homeland at the end of his agreed tenure.
Chris comes to CAM with an extensive and impressive background in the telecommunications industry, including over 22 years at Nokia where his experience at senior level provided him with strong commercial and general management expertise. He has worked in Australia, the UK and Singapore, covering an extensive remit both geographically and functionally. Aside from his technical and commercial acumen, Chris is highly regarded for his collaborative leadership style and for building high performance teams.
Joining CAM at the beginning of May, Chris has been shadowing Peter in the business and has assumed overall management today. He has already met many of the company’s clients and partners.
“Since arriving in Australia over two years ago, it has been a privilege to take a fledgling business and grow it in terms of size, geographical coverage and capability beyond my wildest dreams,” comments Peter Bridgman, CAM’s outgoing Managing Director of CAM in Australia. “It has been a fantastic experience to lead a team who demand the utmost quality and professionalism, not only from their people, but more importantly, from themselves. Within the first year we had established offices not only in Sydney but also Melbourne and Brisbane. The addition of SAED services, Transmission teams and IC&I capability gives us true end-to-end capability in the mobile infrastructure market. Cellular Asset Management Pty Ltd has now established itself as a leading provider of IBC and Mobile infrastructure across all states with a portfolio of acquisition, design and installation projects for some of the most prestigious landmarks in the country. It has been a real pleasure working with some of the most innovative clients in the industry who have driven us all the way! I leave CAM in Australia in the capable hands of its new MD and look forward to seeing it grow in line with the company’s strategic plans.”
“Peter has created a fantastic business for CAM in Australia,” explains David Pearson, Group Managing Director. “Under Peter’s tenure, we have seen CAM in Australia grow from a fledgling operation into a sizeable concern. He has achieved this by putting an incredible level of energy and focus into the business and by fine tuning our services to ensure that they fully meet the needs of the Australian market. I would like to thank Peter for his incredible achievement and wish him the very best for the future. Chris has an impressive track record within the telecoms industry and we are very pleased to welcome him to CAM where I am sure that he will make a valuable contribution to the business.”
“Peter has done a great job of establishing the company and I look forward to leading the CAM business in Australia to maximise its potential in the years ahead,” comments Chris Carr, the newly appointed Managing Director for Australia.
