Internet of Things and communications services vendor Thinxtra has appointed 20-year telecommunications veteran and former Optus head of IoT, Anthony Stewart, as general manager sales for Australia and New Zealand.

Most recently, Stewart led the local IoT practice at Singtel Optus, and “shaped first hand the evolution of this fast growing market in Australia and the region,” Thinxtra says.

Stewart is an industry pioneer who has worked extensively with Australian IoT early adopters since the early 2000’s

“His deep knowledge and hands-on experience in the IoT space will be invaluable to meet increasing market demand for the mass deployment of IoT solutions,” Thinxtra said on Tuesday when announcing Stewart’s appointment.

“I have been a long time advocate of IoT and the positive impact it will have on businesses in terms of efficiency and sustainability, and the resulting impacts on our quality of life,” Stewart said.

“I am delighted to join Thinxtra to make a significant contribution to the proliferation of IoT in ANZ through the market leading Sigfox low power, low cost IoT sensor nationwide networks.”

Thinxtra says it is experiencing rapid growth, especially from organisations who are ready to challenge existing markets and invest in new disruptive business models.

“For the last four years we have been doing the ground work required to position Thinxtra as the leading IoT-Telco in ANZ & HK,” says Loic Barancourt, CEO of Thinxtra.

“We see rapidly increasing adoption and now is the right time for us to grow our team with an industry heavyweight such as Anthony. We have now an even stronger, passionate leadership team committed to connect the unconnected and enable Industry 4.0. There is no doubt that 2020 will be the decade of IoT.”
