Simpli-Fi, specialists in providing fully supported Wi-Fi solutions, has appointed Mike Kershaw as non-executive chairman.

Kershaw’s entrepreneurial background led to him building a £40m turnover event services group from scratch and his in depth knowledge of the sector and an untapped network of event professionals will enable further growth for Simpli-Fi.

Exall said: “Simpli-Fi will continue to serve the demands of our education, leisure and

construction customers. Appointing Mike gives us the opportunity to focus on meeting the

demands of the varied and often complex event sector to provide best in class Wi-Fi solutions.

Any event serious about delivering the best possible customer experience will take Wi-Fi

seriously. It’s not just about having a reliable network to access the internet, it’s also about

enabling organisers with rich data and the confidence to experiment with new technologies that

depend on reliable Wi-Fi. We are excited about our growth in the sector – our aim is to go above

and beyond the needs of event professionals and their events to drive the industry as whole

forward.”
