We are delighted to announce the appointment of Kevin Burns as Wi-Q’s new Operations Director. Kevin has previously worked in corporate and independent telecommunications and consultancy for more than thirty years with senior roles including Managing Director at Oaisys, and Business Development Director at Mitel Networks.
Since winning the Hotelympia Technology Innovation Award in 2016, Wi-Q has continued to lead the way in mobile ordering and payment technology, and Kevin’s role will enable us to create and build key relationships with partners across the hospitality technology industry.
Kevin says: “There is no doubt that mobile ordering and payment technology is the future, and Wi-Q is an innovator but our integration partnerships are critical to our success. We need to be able to speak to the right people and create long-term relationships with partners which will enable us to implement Wi-Q anywhere in the world and integrate with any technology.”
“Wi-Q is a solution that was created to interface and interact with EPOS, Wi-Fi, QSRs - almost any technology in the hospitality marketplace and beyond. It’s my role to create and build the relationships that will enable us to embrace current technology and anticipate change to future-proof Wi-Q in the global marketplace. It’s an incredible solution with endless possibilities so I’m very excited to be a part of that.”
Graham Cornhill, Wi-Q Director explains what a pivotal role Kevin will play as Wi-Q’s Operations Director: “I have known Kevin for more than thirty years and have followed his career and achievements. The role of Operations Director was such a crucial one for Wi-Q, I knew Kevin was the man for the job and we are very happy that he accepted the offer to join us.”
When he’s not creating exciting partnerships at Wi-Q (more news on that soon), Kevin enjoys spending time at home in Bedfordshire, with two his two sons Elliot and George, his beautiful wife Sue and Monty, their crazy but much-loved Labradoodle.
