Claranet group appoints new UK managing director

Claranet Group, Europe's largest independent Internet Service Provider has appointed Steve Rawlinson, currently the group chief technical officer, as the managing director of Claranet UK.

Commenting on his appointment, Steve Rawlinson said:

I am delighted to take on a new role within Claranet. It is not by chance that after the 'Internet bubble' burst Claranet has thrived and grown in an environment when a lot of other ISPs have disappeared. I look forward to building upon our success in the years ahead.

Charles Nasser, the founder of the Claranet Group, will now focus on his role as Group CEO, looking to exploit the opportunities presented in the expanding European Internet and telecommunications markets.

The European Internet market is still young and fragmented, and Claranet is one of the few British-born ISPs to expand successfully on the continent and offer one-stop pan-European solutions.

As an independently owned ISP, Claranet is well placed to react quickly to the latest technological developments in an increasingly dynamic market place, offering innovative, flexible and cost effective Internet services to businesses and consumers across the UK, France, Germany and Spain.
