Mark RaynerIts an exciting time for CW as we return to face to face events, with CW TEC on 22th June and the CW International Conference planned for 27th September. We’re thrilled to have Mark join us as we take on the privilege of delivering Cambridge Tech Week next year.

I’m delighted to join CW as the CEO, at an exciting time for the organisation and its members. The transformation of the wireless and digital economy is gathering pace. This will open new opportunities for our members and I’m looking forward to working with the CW team, board and members to deliver key programs and initiatives that will create further value going forward.
