As a keen golfer this was seen as an ideal fit, however when you work in the industry the last thing you do is actually play! A move into Telecom Site Acquisition came about in 2011 working for a specialist niche organization that provided him with the foundations upon which his personality and negotiation skills were honed to match the requirements and needs of Operators and Site Providers. Tony is excited to be part of the APWireless Team and looks forward to providing win-win scenarios for all our new clients. Tony lives in Enfield, North London, has a young family and is constantly ferrying the children to partake in their busy social activities. Oh the days!
