Sepura updates its senior management team with two new appointments

Sepura, the Hytera owned TETRA solutions provider, has appointed Terence Ledger as its sales and marketing director to drive sales in its key growth markets, and Jane Farebrother as finance director to deliver the financial strategy and governance to support this growth.

Ledger joined Sepura in 2011, driving the growth of the company’s Asia Pacific business as regional director while based in Kuala Lumpur. In that role he oversaw the delivery of TETRA solutions to numerous public safety organisations, and complex commercial TETRA Systems and Solutions across the region, while building a team to underpin Sepura’s continued growth in the region.

Prior to joining Sepura, Ledger held a number of senior management and sales roles in telecoms companies in both Europe and APAC. He will be based at the company’s Cambridge headquarters.

Ledger said: “It is clear that there is a continuing growth opportunity for secure PMR in public safety and other critical national infrastructure organisations worldwide, with many countries having committed to supporting the standard moving forwards. Sepura is well positioned to support this demand, and I am looking forward to ensuring that we are providing the best communications solutions to meet the exacting standards that our customers require.”

Previously head of group treasury, Farebrother has been with Sepura since 2005, and has worked in a number of senior roles within its finance function. The company stated that her appointment will provide it with the strategic financial leadership and industry experience to support the forecast growth in the business.

Acting CEO Steve Barber said: “With this announcement, Sepura is further demonstrating the value of industry experience in the management team in providing governance and setting strategy. Terence has demonstrated a deep understanding of the TETRA market and has driven significant success for Sepura in the developing PMR market. Jane has many years’ experience in our industry and has formed strong working relationships with many of Sepura’s partners. Together with our existing senior management team they will make a major contribution to achieving the goals we have set and strengthening Sepura’s influence in the PMR market.”
