Gavin Webster

VP Sales

Gavin brings over 15 years of sales experience in the telecoms sector to WIT, and in particular a wealth of knowledge and understanding around the creation, launch and evolution of new telecoms services.

In his career, Gavin has worked for large organisations like HP and BroadVision, but his overriding passion is in helping innovative companies to win new customers based on the excellence and integrity of their products and services.

Gavin spent four years with SurfKitchen, the pioneers of the downloadable app through which mobile operators could sell and market content and services to their subscribers (a concept that Apple later made famous!)

Whilst at Colibria for five years, Gavin initially worked with tier 1 and tier 2 mobile operators across EMEA for Mobile IM solutions. Subsequently Gavin headed up a Colibria business unit responsible for the delivery, launch and growth of saas-based mobile social messaging to major carrier groups in Latin America, prior to its successful exit.

Gavin is delighted to, once again, be working for one of the pioneers of the industry, WIT Software, a hugely innovative and high quality engineering company that makes a major contribution in delivering new messaging services to mobile operators.
