Catherine has worked around telecoms and technology from the 1990’s in the USA and UK including with start-ups focussed around cloud services for mobile interworking to positions at Cable & Wireless and BT.
Seven years ago, Catherine joined UK Broadband, eventually Three UK, to develop a business in Private Networks which included work with Heathrow Airport and the Port of Felixstowe. During this time, Catherine sought to move the story forward from 4G to 5G. Working with DCMS projects and consortiums found Catherine helping to define what’s next for industry through the use of 5G.
Catherine’s current role involves working with Cellnex/Edzcom to launch private networks in the UK from the successful base of Edzcom customers in Europe.
In addition to bringing the best of 5G innovation to industry and the public sector, Catherine’s work on the board of the Kay Mason Foundation, which funds high school scholarships for impoverished children in South Africa, has given her a renewed passion for using 5G to help to bridge the digital divide that exists in the UK today.
