Amsterdam, The Netherlands – June 15, 2023— Horizon Telecom, a global secure internet connectivity, communications, and security leader, has appointed Bram Vermeulen as Operations Director. Horizon Telecom has taken another important step to continue the expansion of its international growth ambitions. Last month the organization also announced its new Sales Director, Jan-Willem Behrens. The arrival of Bram Vermeulen further strengthens Horizon Telecoms’ executive team.
Vermeulen has more than 20 years of experience in various (Service) Operations Management positions in security and networking IT at, among others, BT, NTT, and Ahold Delhaize. Vermeulen’s expertise is a valuable addition to the growth of networking and security management, as well as service excellence and employee engagement within Horizon Telecom.
“Each day at Horizon Telecom is about making employees and customers happy,” says Vermeulen. “Over the years, I have seen that service excellence is only possible with 100% employee engagement. Horizon Telecom distinguishes itself in the market by combining innovative, global solutions with its customer-oriented approach. Our brand promise is: ‘We will solve the issue, even if it’s ‘not’ our problem’. It sounds simple, but the personal attention and expertise of the Horizon staff is a formula that works.”
Melvin Jellesma, CEO and Founder of Horizon Telecom, says: “We see that the world of security and networking is coming together. To be ‘globally in control’ as a customer, you need a frontrunner who understands this. We’ve noticed that our customers expect more from us as an independent partner for security, connectivity, and communication. They also purchase more integrated security services worldwide. With the arrival of Bram, we further strengthen our as-a-service solutions and continue to invest in the highest NPS score in the telecom market.”
