Technology service provider Zen Internet has announced two internal promotions with the appointment of David Barber as director of strategy and Amanda Rogers as its new head of marketing.

New head of marketing Amanda Rogers will report directly to Barber, overseeing the creation and implementation of marketing strategies that target both new and existing customers. 

Rogers and her team will support the consumer, partner, and business operating divisions with marketing communications and campaign activity to help build brand awareness and grow market share, Zen added.

“David and Amanda have already made significant personal contributions to the development of Zen as an established player in the connectivity, cloud, and communications markets,” said Paul Stobart, CEO at Zen Internet.

“Going forward, our ambition is to be recognised as the most trusted service provider, delivering an exceptional customer experience, underpinned by the highest quality technology.”

Founded in 1995, Zen Internet has grown to become the largest B Corporation-certified telecommunications and network connectivity provider in the UK and now has a staff base of more than 500 people.

The Rochdale-headquartered ISP provides broadband, data, voice, hosting, and infrastructure services to homes and businesses across the country, as well as complex network and cloud solutions for large businesses through strategic partnerships with AWS and Cisco. The firm also works indirectly via its network of channel partners.

In its announcement, Zen said Barber and Rogers will play a key part in helping the business take advantage of new market opportunities.

“Notwithstanding current economic headwinds, the next few years are likely to be full of opportunity for Zen as the market moves to full fibre and the cloud,” Stobart said.

“David and Amanda will play an integral role in ensuring that our business, product and marketing strategies are shaped to help us deliver on our ambitions and make the most of the opportunities that lie ahead.”
