Catherine has worked with telecoms and technology since the 1990s in the USA and UK. Her experience ranges from working with start-ups focused on cloud services for mobile interworking to positions at Cable & Wireless and BT.
Seven years ago, Catherine joined UK Broadband, eventually Three UK, to develop a business in private networks, which included working with Heathrow Airport and the Port of Felixstowe. During this time, Catherine sought to move the story forward from 4G to 5G.
Working with DCMS projects and consortiums found Catherine helping define what’s next for industry through 5G. Catherine’s current role involves working with Cellnex / Edzcom to launch private networks in the UK from the successful base of Edzcom customers in Europe.
In addition to bringing the best of 5G innovation to the industry and the public sector, Catherine’s work on the Kay Mason Foundation board funds high school scholarships for impoverished children in South Africa. It has given her a renewed passion for using 5G to help bridge the digital divide in the UK today.
