We are delighted to announce that Christian Craggs has been appointed as the new director of M&A and strategy.
In his role, Christian will join the Executive Management Team (EMT) and take lead on shaping the overall business strategy for Onecom, reporting directly to CEO Ben Dowd.
“We’re delighted to welcome Christian to Onecom, he’s highly respected in his field and brings with him a strong track record from Oakley Advisory where he was able to make a significant impact in relatively short order. As part of the LDC transaction, he worked closely with Onecom over the last year, so he has a good understanding of our business and team,” said Ben Dowd, CEO. “I’m confident that the proven expertise he brings to his new role will make him instrumental to Onecom at a hugely exciting point in our company’s history.”
Christian joins from independent corporate finance firm Oakley Advisory, where he was Managing Director for four years, which included responsibility for the origination and execution of M&A, equity and debt fundraisings and IPOs. Prior to that, he held several senior roles at O2 where he was responsible for B2B strategy and corporate development, as well as the sales operations of O2’s B2B business.
Having recently secured a £100m funding package, Onecom is looking to pursue ambitious growth targets. Christian will define Onecom’s M&A strategy as a critical element in achieving those goals.
