Wireless infrastructure-as-a-service provider Ontix has appointed a chief commercial officer.

Andy McKinnon will have overall responsibility for sales and marketing at the London company, which invests in small cell infrastructure – including connectivity – then licenses this to operators. 

McKinnon has more than 30 years of global IT and telecommunications experience, most recently having served as a senior managing consultant at Huawei, overseeing business modelling for new wireless innovations globally, as well as previous senior commercial roles at Nokia, Motorola and EDS.

“We are excited to welcome Andy to Ontix as we continue to pass key milestones in the deployment of our technology, further expand our partner networks, and build our team for the future,” said Patrick Bradd, CEO. 

“Andy’s leadership and broad experience will be essential in supporting our growth as we continue to provide gigabit-speed wireless connectivity in places where previously it may have been thought impractical or impossible.”


McKinnon added: “I am delighted to begin 2022 in a new role at Ontix – a fast-growing and innovative business whose technologies are vital to the world today.

“The team shares a commitment to a vision of developing and deploying the highest quality and most up to date connectivity quickly and cost-effectively wherever it is required, outdoors and in, and the company is in a great position to help its customers as they begin their digital transformation journeys.”
