Renowned SaaS entrepreneur joins following acquisition of Yay.com
Unified communications software vendor, TelcoSwitch has appointed Matt Mansell as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Mansell takes over from former CEO Russell Lux, who founded the company in 2015 and oversaw growth of the challenger brand into a key player in the UK channel market, resulting in a majority private equity investment funded by Queen’s Park Equity (QPE) in 2022.
Mansell brings a wealth of executive experience and knowledge to the role. His early career saw him pioneer at Adobe with their Dreamweaver product, then serving as Founder and CEO of the fastest-growing European domain registrar, acquired by Host Europe (Go Daddy) in 2012. He then spent almost three years representing the European Go Daddy board before founding Yay.com, a SaaS unified communications business. Yay.com was also acquired by QPE in 2022 as part of its long-term strategy for IP investment and development in TelcoSwitch.
“TelcoSwitch has been disruptive in the UK channel market with a much-loved product and commercial model”, said Mansell. “I’m excited to take over the CEO seat as we combine the strength of our fantastic partners with such a unique, innovative and powerful platform”.
Mansell takes up the role with immediate effect.
