With over 35 years of communications infrastructure experience, Greg has founded and helped grow fibre companies across five European countries. Part of the founding team of Esat Telecom in Ireland which later sold to BT for over €1bn, Greg went on to help found Versatel Telecom NV, joining the executive team as President and COO. Operating across Holland, Belgium and Germany, Versatel established one of the region’s largest fibre-based infrastructures and was sold for over €2bn in 2002.
Greg founded the carrier-neutral wholesale network CityFibre in January 2011. The company has since raised over £2bn in equity and £4.9bn in debt financing. CityFibre has completed six acquisitions and is building Full Fibre infrastructure across a third of the UK market. Today CityFibre is privately owned by Antin Infrastructure Partners, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Mubadala Investment Company and Interogo Holding.
