ICT service provider, AWA, has appointed David Spence to its board of directors.
The former Unwired CEO bought AWA along with seven other counterparts in 2002 but had been distant from the company due to his commitments at Unwired.
He left Unwired after a six-year tenure.
AWA has been involved in the telecommunications space and also focuses on hardware asset maintenance, hardware management and repairs.
While it has fallen off the radar in recent years, Spence’s goal is to bring AWA back to the spotlight.
“We want to be the number one national provider of break-fix services and will focus on trying to do that in the next 12 months,” he said.
The board of directors will dictate the strategy of the company, add value and assist management in making the right decisions, Spence said.
Since departing Unwired, Spence said he had been helping out smaller businesses in the Internet space.
“I have been a venture capitalist before my Unwired days and I have 15 years experience in the industry so I am quite happy to lend anybody a hand,” he said.
Spence is also working on the acquisition of Vocus Group by ASX-listed investment fund, First Opportunity. Once the group has been renamed to Vocus Communications in June, Spence will step in as chairman.
