GTT Announces New UK and Europe Divisions


Communications, Inc.
(NYSE:GTT), the leading global cloud
networking provider to multinational clients, announced today an updated
division structure following the acquisition of Interoute.

GTT appointed Martin Ford as UK division president, with responsibility
for clients in the UK and Ireland in addition to the Middle East, Africa
and Asia-Pacific. Mr. Ford previously served as GTT's EMEA division
president. Prior to GTT, Mr. Ford held a broad range of leadership roles
with Hibernia Networks and Level 3.

GTT announced Jesper Aagaard as Europe division president, with
responsibility for clients in continental Europe. Mr. Aagaard was
formerly managing director of Interoute in the Nordics and Netherlands.
Prior to Interoute, Mr. Aagaard was CEO of Comendo Network in Denmark.

The new division structure aligns with GTT's expanded presence in Europe
following its May 31 acquisition of Interoute, one of the region's
largest independent network operators. GTT's divisions have
responsibility for key functions driving organic growth and the client
experience, including sales, quoting, ordering, service delivery,
billing and overall client account management.

The new divisions complement the Americas division led by Eric Warren
and the Carrier division led by Jeff Beer.

"We have a tremendous opportunity to serve the expanding requirements of
multinationals for cloud networking services," stated Rick Calder, GTT
president and CEO. "Our new division structure and talented leadership
enable us to provide outstanding service to our clients as we deliver on
