SMS and messaging startup, Augnet, has appointed Jonathan Kendall as Commercial Director. Kendall brings extensive experience and a far-reaching network to further strengthen the company and will focus on building strategic partnerships, drawing engagement and creating new avenues.
Kendall specialises in building enterprise-ready, go-to-market sales and marketing infrastructures and has led sales teams across the sector, from high-profile companies to industry-challenging startups, through periods of significant growth including at Juniper Networks, Vodafone, Telstra, Motorola and Cap Gemini.
Over the past five years, he was retained by venture capital firms to work within disruptors in their portfolios including Comverse, Skipjaq and Zalaris, to deliver fast growth and help initiate and accelerate product-market fit to scale-up challenges and support exit and disposal scenarios.
We are excited to welcome Jonathan Kendall to the Augnet team. Jonathan’s calibre of experience, network and respect within the industry will be of huge value to us as we continue to transform the SMS and messaging space. He will play a large part in taking Augnet to the next level.
