LONDON, Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — London-based Worldwide Business Review has announced that Teligistics’ CEO Dave Roberts has been awarded their C-Suite Award for Telecom Technology CEO of the Year for 2017.
Worldwide Business Review reaches 70,000 of the leading CEOs, executives, innovators and leading professionals from across the corporate landscape and around the world every quarter.
Discussing the awards, Jessie Wilson, awards coordinator for Worldwide Business Review, stated: “I am proud to showcase the hard work, commitment and expertise of the winners, all of whom have truly deserved their recognition.”
Wilson added, “Roberts has literally transformed the process multinational enterprises use to acquire telecom services from the world’s largest global telecom providers. Teligistics recently eclipsed the $10 billion mark for outsourced telecom contract value for clients over their 20-plus-year history. Roberts’ vision led to the development of Telibid ™ – an innovative global telecom sourcing tool, which has also won one of our top applications in technology awards for 2017.”
Roberts and his team at Teligistics have developed “Best in Class” contractual terms used by large telecom consumers and are considered subject matter experts on complex telecom and technology contract negotiations and the structuring of corporate telecom purchasing agreements.
“We simply deliver quantifiable results and make a very painful process much less so,” noted Teligistics CEO Dave Roberts. “Our clients, some who are among the largest companies in the world – do not typically maintain the subject matter or specialized legal expertise on staff that is really required to level the playing field with the giant telecom providers. Because they do this only once every two to three years, they are at an extreme disadvantage when dealing with seasoned telecom negotiators, regulations, market conditions and technology changes. That is an eternity in this industry.”
He continued, “Technology changes take place at such a high rate of frequency that the enterprise needs a champion who knows how to win ‘World Class’ deals and have the foresight in likely technology adoption to structure the deals so as not to put them at a competitive disadvantage.”
Roberts added further, “This industry is becoming more transactional every day. I’m determined to forever change this industry from the old monopolistic culture of one-sided telecom contracting and procurement processes that are extremely burdensome and punitive to enterprise customers.”
Regarding the C-Suite Award, Roberts added, “This is the third award for Telibid™ just this year. I’m also deeply honored and humbled by being awarded Telecom Technology CEO of the Year. I am very proud of our 98% client re-engagement rate. This is a testament to the highly dedicated staff at Teligistics and the trust our clients put in us. ”
