John Delves has been appointed as the new Managing Director of Magnet Networks. 

The appointment of the former Digicel CEO follows the recent acquisition of the company by Speed Fibre Group, an Irish investment vehicle focused on telecoms infrastructure.

Mr Delves spent over a decade at CEO level with Digicel in the Pacific and Caribbean, and implemented two successful greenfield launches in Vanuatu and Fiji. 

Magnet Networks operates the country's biggest connectivity network and also provides connectivity for some of the world's biggest technology companies, as well as telecommunications and data connectivity solutions to both commercial and residential markets.

"John is the ideal person to further develop Magnet Networks' range of customer focussed solutions and drive best-in-class customer satisfaction for its large client base," said Speed Fibre Group's CEO Peter McCarthy. 

"He has a track record of top-level telecoms success and as CEO of Digicel Trinidad and Tobago he developed the company from being a mobile-only operator into a total communications provider across mobile, fixed, TV, digital media and Broadband," Mr McCarthy added. 

John Delves said that Magnet Networks, as the only provider to grant one-stop access to all connectivity options offered by every major network operator in Ireland, are in a position to change the way that business broadband is sold in this country.
