TalkTalk Business win ‘Best Wholesale Sales Team’ Award at the Global Carrier Awards 2020!

We are delighted to announce we've scooped the Best Wholesale Sales Team Award at this year's Global Carrier Awards 2020!

Over the last 18 months the TalkTalk Business Carrier sales team has been reorganised and refocused into one of the most effective sales operations in the telecommunications channel.

Andrew Partridge, Head of Carrier Data & Systems Integrator, reorganised the team and nurtured a sense of inclusion and community. His efforts have been recognised within the team as he provides clear focus and strategy, particularly for a full fibre future. Andrew said “The UK telecoms landscape is changing. Until recently Openreach has been the only really viable access provider, TalkTalk Business has the deepest interconnect with Openreach of any Carrier. There has been huge investment in new Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) network builders who are springing up the length and breadth of the UK. TalkTalk Business is embracing these providers and will soon be offering this access to our Carrier partners building Global Networks and offering a one stop shop for this new cost-efficient last mile access.

With the TalkTalk Business Carrier sales team, customers come first. They come first because our team members make sure of it. We value our employees, give them the freedom to innovate on behalf of Carriers, and always keep channels of communication open. In turn, team members work diligently for the good of our Carriers.” 

The 16th annual Global Carrier Awards went virtual for the very first time on Thursday 22 October. Broadcast live from London, Paris and Dubai, the event brought together notable market figures to celebrate the achievements of the wholesale telecoms industry. 

Global Carrier Awards said; “TalkTalk Business’ wholesale sales team’s very detailed metrics demonstrating solid growth in the past year won this champion one of the most wanted awards of the year. It has been a long road back to growth for TalkTalk after some difficult years for their brand, and judges were delighted to see them winning again and putting themselves forward for this award on the back of that success.”

We have also been placed as highly commended for the Keeping Britain Connected award at the Comms National Awards 2020, highly commended for the People and Culture award at the WCA Awards 2020 and have been made finalists for seven awards this year so far.


A special shout-out to Andrew Partridge, his amazing team and all the others who work so hard behind the scenes. This award win is a testament to the amazing work our Wholesale team has delivered over the last year and the team’s extensive dedication to deliver outstanding results, it’s brilliant to see this has been recognised.

We're so proud of our award-winning team and it's great to see their hard work being recognised!
