DCMS engagement lead moves to Freshwave

Connectivity infrastructure specialist Freshwave has announced the appointment of former Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) engagement lead Nick Wiggin as its new partnerships lead.

In his new role, Wiggin said he would look to help Freshwave scale up engagement with the public sector by “cooperating closely with the mobile network operators and regional authorities to help speed up the process by which local authorities can improve their digital infrastructure”.

Wiggin joins from the DCMS where he led the Digital Connectivity Infrastructure Accelerator, a programme dedicated to supporting the rollout of digital connectivity using public sector assets, since its creation in 2021. Wiggin brings more than two decades of experience to Freshwave from roles at BT, Huawei, Ericsson and GSMA.

At Freshwave, Wiggin will be responsible for heading up the company’s relationships with regional and local authorities. He will also support the team in engaging with the mobile network operators on their public sector activities and collaborating with all parties to help connect communities.

Commenting on his new role, Wiggin added: “I’m a big believer in the power of partnerships in advancing connectivity so I’m excited to join Freshwave, as they’re all about collaborating in new ways to achieve great results.”
