Abloy UK appoints Rob Turner to strengthen Telecoms and Communications division

Rob Turner - Abloy

Abloy UK is delighted to announce the appointment of Rob Turner to its Critical Infrastructure (CI) division, specialising in the Telecoms sector, broadening the skills and experience within the team and bolstering its position in the industry.

Rob has been appointed as Market Development Manager for Critical Infrastructure – Communications, bringing with him over 20 years’ sales experience, most recently with a time and attendance hardware and software provider.

This role gave him a consultative approach to software, and a strong understanding of issues in this field such as duplication of data and the need for integration.

He’s keen to use this knowledge to build relationships and engage with people across the communications sector, including mobile network operators, tower companies, ISP providers and datacentres, as well as postal, radio and TV media operators.

Rob comments: “We’ve seen Telecoms companies catapulted 5-10 years ahead of where they were predicted thanks to the pandemic, but often we see that although they may have many disparate sites and assets across the UK, security isn’t, and can sometimes be seen as secondary.

“However, asset management and controlling infrastructure is crucial in the sector, and it’s important for me to speak to people at all levels in a business – whether that’s an end user, sub-contractor or another influencer – to fully understand the issues they face around security and explain how Abloy solutions can help.

“BEAT is a product that I’m especially excited about for my particular industry; its set to be a massive success. BEAT is a keyless solution that combines a digital key, a mobile app and a heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock, offering flexible access rights and audit trails amongst a raft of other features.”

Steve Wintle, Head of CNI at Abloy UK added: “We’re really pleased to have Rob on board, and his appointment strengthens our commitment to expanding our expertise across the UK’s Critical infrastructure, growing our market-leading position as the first choice for high-security solutions.

“We’d like to give him a very warm welcome to the team, and look forward to utilising his trusted expertise to better serve our clients in the Telecoms sector.”
