Jeff Parris

Partner, Positive Momentum

Jeff began his working life as an apprentice in BT.  During his early career he was responsible for Satellite Communications infrastructure and running the world’s first trials of satellite telephone communications for passengers on long haul aircraft.  This taste for a blend of technical and commercial responsibilities then led to Jeff taking on responsibility for an International joint venture between BT, Singapore Telecom and Norwegian Telecom.

Following this Jeff ran a joint venture between BT & France Telecom and from there Jeff set up and lead another joint venture, this time between Motorola, Nokia, Northrup Grumman and BT. He was tasked with winning a competitive bid to provide a ground-breaking modern digital mobile communications service to the Police across the UK. That started the life of what today is Airwave a much-respected service, currently owned by Motorola.  Jeff was a founding board member and held a variety of senior executive roles.

In 2010 Jeff joined Global Crossing (subsequently Level 3) to run their Public Sector business in EMEA including the UK.

Since joining Positive Momentum 10 years ago, Jeff has been helping a wide variety of organisations, big and small, as they grow their business and their people in the UK and further afield. He has experience in helping organisations working with Governments.
