Alpha board bolstered by Scottish Telecom connection

Matthews' appointment follows £9.5m investment

The founder of Scottish Telecom, Rod Matthews, is to join the board of Alpha Telecom, the company announced today. He commented: "Alpha has developed an impressive operation in a short period of time - their ambition and motivation is exciting. My experience of building a significant telecomms business should prove significant in accelerating the company's development." The appointment is part of the company's ongoing program of investment in staff and infrastructure, following a £9.5 million cash injection from venture capitalists at Royal Bank Development Capital. Matthews said that he was 'delighted' to join the company. A company spokesman said: "Whilst RBDC's investment is helping us to acquire technological infrastructure, it is the people behind the technology that really count. Rod is the latest in a number of key high level appointments at Alpha Telecom. With these industry leaders on board, we are well placed to capitalise on the various opportunities available to us." ®
