ZEGONA APPOINTS RICHARD WILLIAMS AS

NON EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

 

Zegona, an LSE Main Market company established to acquire and operate businesses in the European Telecommunications, Media and Technology (''TMT'') sector, is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Williams to the Company's Board as an additional independent non executive director with immediate effect.

 

Richard has spent most of his career in European Telecommunications, most recently as Director of Investor Relations at Altice, and prior to that, Virgin Media.  Richard is a qualified Chartered Accountant and has held financial planning roles at Walt Disney and ITV Digital. He joined Telewest Communications in 1999 in an Investor Relations role, which later merged with NTL and was rebranded to Virgin Media.  Richard led Virgin Media's IR activity through to the acquisition of the company by Liberty Global in 2013.  Richard then joined Altice, where he supported the company's IPO and Altice's acquisition of SFR and Portugal Telecom.

 

Eamonn O' Hare, Chairman and Chief Executive of Zegona commented: "Following the recent completion of our first acquisition (Telecable in Spain) and the continued growth in opportunities to exploit our 'buy-fix-sell' strategy across the European communications market, Richard's experience makes him a great add to the Zegona team.  We will also benefit significantly from Richard's extensive relationships with large global equity investors to leverage our Main Market listing, and further enhance Zegona's institutional investor base over the coming years."
