Tom O’Hagan, 35
Founded in 2007, network operator Virtual1 has made a name for itself in a crowded marketplace. Delivering connectivity and cloud solutions exclusively to the wholesale markets, the business is predicted to grow organically to £20m in the next 2 years.
The company has more than 200 wholesale customers and installs and manages wide area networks on behalf of its partners, which range from small to medium enterprises to major international corporations. Tom O’Hagan himself is something of an expert when it comes to the telecommunications industry, having worked in the sector for more than 12 years, and his business now employs over 30 people.
