Gamma Communications plc

Appointment of Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer

Broadening of executive management team

Gamma Communications plc ("Gamma" or the "Group"), a leading provider of Unified Communications as a Service ("UCaaS") to the business markets in the UK, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands, is pleased to announce two appointments which strengthen and broaden the capacity of the executive management team. These two appointments further support the executive management team in the ongoing successful delivery of Gamma's growth strategy.

Andrew Belshaw, who has been Chief Financial Officer since Gamma's IPO in 2014, will be appointed Deputy Chief Executive, and will continue to report to Andrew Taylor and be a member of Gamma's Board of Directors. In this role, Andrew will take on a range of strategic and operational responsibilities to support the development and growth of the Group. These responsibilities will include overseeing aspects of product management, product development and operations and the execution of M&A. Andrew will also oversee Gamma's group people strategy, ensuring that Gamma attracts and retains great talent while continuing to be a great place to work.

Taking over from Andrew Belshaw, William (Bill) Castell has been appointed Chief Financial Officer. Bill will report to Andrew Taylor, and it is expected that he will join the Company and the Board of Directors in May 2022. Bill is currently Chief Financial Officer at OVO Energy, the technology-led green energy business. Before joining OVO Energy in 2020, Bill spent three years at Virgin Media which he joined as Deputy Chief Financial Officer and later became acting Chief Financial Officer. From 2005 to 2017, Bill was at Barclays Bank where he held a number of senior finance roles including Chief Financial Officer at Barclays Corporate Bank and Chief Financial Officer of Barclaycard Europe.

Andrew Belshaw's move to Deputy Chief Executive will take place when Bill joins the Company.

Richard Last, Chairman, commented:

"The Board is pleased to announce these two key appointments which reiterate our focus on developing our senior leadership capacity, ensuring that we capitalise on Gamma's significant growth opportunities."

Andrew Taylor, Chief Executive added:

"Strengthening the scope and capacity of our management team is an important part of our five-year growth strategy; and I am absolutely delighted that we have successfully attracted someone of Bill's quality and experience to take over from Andrew Belshaw as our CFO.

"The growth opportunities for Gamma are significant and in addition to doing a brilliant job as our CFO, Andrew has played a key role in both the development and operational implementation of our strategy. The appointment of Bill will allow Andrew to commit all of his time to further developing and executing our immediate and longer-term plans. This is a much-deserved promotion, and I am personally looking forward to working with Andrew in his new role."
