Robert Whyte-Venables - Service Director
A highly regarded expert in his field, Rob was part of the Global 4 start up team and still maintains a hands-on approach to his role. Over 25 years of telecoms industry experience stands Rob in good stead to lead the team of Field Engineers to deliver outstanding customer service and maintenance support.

Carl Barnett – Sales Director
Carl has been with Global 4 for more than a decade, working his way up from telesales operative to become Sales Director. During his time at Global 4, Carl has gained experience across all Global 4’s departments, including telesales, servicing, account management and sales. This has given Carl valuable insight into the workings of the company as well as its customers and what they want.
While he is responsible for the strategic direction of the sales team and for signing off on big projects, Carl still takes a hands on approach visiting more clients and potential leads than ever before.
Michael Brent – Finance Director
Michael is one of those few qualified accountants with an MBA, all of which he has achieved in his free time outside of work. This rare combination gives him strong technical knowledge of both the financial and strategic running of a business. Michael also has key analytical skills and a proven track record of financial transformation within numerous sectors, including SMEs and charities.
Joining Global 4 in October 2015, Michael is helping to take the company to the next level of growth through transforming financial mechanisms that will improve customer service, acquisition and retention.
