Airband appoints former Gigaclear executive Charl Tintinger as CTO

In his role as CTO at Airband, Tintinger will focus on rapidly scaling the company’s network capabilities in line with its growth trajectory, following the confirmation of multiple multi-million pound contracts, and significant investment from Aberdeen Standard Investments.

As well as leading the team to build high-capacity Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) broadband networks around the UK, Tintinger’s priority will be serving the company’s rurally based customers with connectivity.

Prior to joining Airband, Tintinger spent four years at Gigaclear, serving as technical director, data protection officer and head of security in place of the previous CTO before officially taking on the CTO position in name in 2019.
