Tait Communications has made another senior level appointment with selection of Craig Clapper as President of Global Solutions and Business Development based in the USA. Craig takes over from interim president Judd Cain, who last week the New Zealand critical communications company appointed as regional manager for UK and EMEA.
Clapper is charged with developing the global Tait business and building new opportunities with customers and partners as Tait continues to pursue its strategy of growing as an internationally focused and essential critical communications partner.
Clapper has spent the last two years in Stockholm, where he was head of Customer Support Portfolio for multinational communications provider Ericsson. Before moving to Sweden, he worked for Ericsson in the US for 13 years in a range of roles, from strategic planning, services, sales and business development.
Tait CEO Garry Diack said: “We are operating in a highly competitive, global and rapidly evolving sector that compels a constant focus on the future. We are delighted to welcome Craig to his newly created role to lead our global business development and ensure Tait enhances its positioning in the critical communications sector.”
Judd Cain, who has been with Tait for four years and recently moved from Houston to the UK to lead Tait’s UK and EMEA business from its new regional headquarters in Cambridge.
Diack added: “Our appointment of Judd and the relocation of the leadership role to Cambridge reflects the strengthening of the business in the UK as a centre from which to service existing and future customers across the entire EMEA region.”
