Former TPG executive Dan Lloyd will join British communications service provider Ofcom as group director of its spectrum division.
Lloyd has more than 20 years of experience in the wireless and technology sectors, working across ten countries over his career.
He was group executive wholesale at TPG Telecom Australia. He was responsible for leading both the wholesale and intercarrier team and the cross-functional Spectrum strategy group.
Lloyd has also held senior management positions with Vodafone UK and India. He has chaired both the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) and the Vodafone Australia Foundation, and served as board director for the UK-India Business Council.
As group director, Lloyd will oversee Ofcom’s spectrum division next month to ensure that the UK’s wireless spectrum is deployed efficiently.
“The spectrum group has a critical role in managing exponentially increasing demand for innovative wireless services. The breadth and depth of expertise in Ofcom’s spectrum group and senior management team is simply world-class, so it is a great pleasure to be joining Melanie and the team to lead this challenging area,” Lloyd said on his appointment.
“The role of group director for Spectrum needs a global outlook, as we work with other countries on spectrum policy and management. Dan has the international, commercial and spectrum experience Ofcom needs in this role, and I’m very much looking forward to working with him,” concluded Ofcom CEO Dame Melanie Dawes. IT Wire
