“The pandemic and lockdowns have focused everyone’s minds on connectivity, both in the technical sense of being connected to the web, but also in human-to-human coming together. Historically speaking, it has been through new types of connectivity that social and material progress has been made whether it was the road system from the Romans to the canals and railway systems of the Victorians. We are at the beginning of another transformative connectivity revolution which will be fast and dynamic, giving rise to a great number of things that will change people’s lives for the better. Being part of this great wave of positive change is something I’m truly excited to be involved in,” Kalam added.
“Welcoming Kalam on board is a huge achievement for our business. His vast experience and industry knowledge will be invaluable in what is a truly pivotal moment for the networking industry. Kalam will play an integral role in evolving our bespoke ISP offerings, to support us on our journey to become the leading vendor of choice for this market,” commented Will Liu, Managing Director, TP-Link UK.
