Our Industries


As the telecommunications ecosystem has experienced a fundamental shift away from voice and towards data, legacy communications players have had to innovate and shift their strategies in order to survive, as well as fuelling M&A activity in the sector. There are new opportunities for growth in areas like IOT, content, security, big data analytics, and OTT services, and the space between IT services and communications service providers continues to become smaller. Wilton & Bain understands the ever changing landscape and the talent issues that these opportunities present.
