Big changes at Open Telecommunications

Listed company Open Telecommunications has boosted its management team with several appointments intended to provide control of planned rapid growth at home and abroad. "The company is undergoing significant growth both in its technology and in the international sales of its products. These senior management appointments are integral to ensuring that the company's growth is properly structured and effectively managed," explained Wayne Passlow, managing director of Open Telecommunications.
