Chris Stening commented on his appointment:

 

“I am thrilled to join Eight Advisory. After a period of focus on rollout, fibre builders are now switching to drive service take up whilst also having to deal with the inevitable consolidation we will see over the next few years. Navigating these changes successfully requires experienced help and I am delighted to be joining a firm with such an impressive track record.”

 

Nick Breadner, Strategy & Operations Partner at Eight Advisory, said:

 

“There is a huge opportunity to support our clients drive return on capital from network deployment and maximise take-up of services on those networks.  Consolidation in fibre and other parts of the telecoms market also requires skilled advice and hands-on support in merger integration and realisation of synergies. Chris has a deep experience across these areas.”
