Custom Connect, a global managed service provider of carrier neutral and microwave connectivity services, today announced the appointment of Anthony Kingsnorth as Group Chief Operating Officer.

Kingsnorth will lead Custom Connect’s global operations across its entire service portfolio, which includes fibre and microwave access solutions, ultra-low latency networking for trading and financial services, connectivity for media and e-commerce organisations, cloud and data centre services, and any emerging opportunities in new markets.

He will also be involved in the definition of the Group’s overall business strategy as well as the development of its existing product and managed services offering. Anthony will sit on the Group Executive Committee and will be based in the company’s London office.

“We are delighted to have Anthony join Custom Connect”, said Jan Willem Meijer, CEO and Co-Owner of Custom Connect. “Anthony has a phenomenal pedigree combined with industry-wide respect and we have no doubt that his expertise in technology and managed services within financial services will be of tremendous value to Custom Connect, our customers and our partners globally.”

Olav van Doorn, Co-Owner of Custom Connect continued, “We believe the addition of Anthony to our team will help develop our fast-growing company into the mature global operation that is expected of a vendor-neutral provider like us. Anthony will be a tremendous asset for our firm.”

Kingsnorth worked for a number of investment banks before moving to Fixnetix, a global provider of front office outsourcing solutions, where he served as Chief Operating Officer for Fixnetix and built the company’s managed services proposition. Prior to that he worked at ING Barings, JPMorgan Chase and Lehman Brothers, where he led the EMEA Production Services team.

Hugh Hughes, Chief Executive of Fixnetix, said, “Over the past six years Anthony played an instrumental role in growing the managed services component of Fixnetix and directly influenced our success in this area. We wish Anthony the best of luck and look forward to the continuation of our existing global partnership with Custom Connect.”

Kingsnorth concluded, “Joining Custom Connect is tremendously exciting, especially at a time of such phenomenal growth. Having worked with Custom Connect directly, I have experienced first hand the professionalism, level of focus and clear strategy centred around its market leading solutions and customer service. I intend to take this core belief to help develop the company and to implement this mentality across new service offerings as we continue to expand globally.”
