Colt Technology Services announced today it has appointed Paula Cogan as its new chief commercial officer (CCO).
Cogan replaces former CCO Kerry Gilder, who has left her position to become CEO earlier this year.
Cogan had joined Colt four years ago and played an influential role in the firm’s success as its vice president for enterprise and capital market sales, according to Colt.
She will be responsible for driving the company’s commercial strategy, leading global teams across sales, presales and marketing.

Cogan will also work closely with the wider organisation to ensure Colt delivers on its vision of transforming the way the world works through the power of connectivity, the company said.
Fostering strong customer relationships
“In her time with Colt, Paula’s achievements have been underpinned by her ability to foster strong relationships with customers and partners, while remaining focuses on leading and transforming our teams to deliver sales excellence. Having worked closely with Paula throughout my time within the CCO function, I know she will continue to deliver excellent results and further support the team as they continue to deliver for our customers,” said Keri Gilder.
During her time at the company, Colt was also a founding member of Colt’s women’s network, Network 25, believing strongly in the equal representation of women in telecommunications.
Prior to joining the firm, Cogan held several senior sales roles at Verizon Business and BT.
“I have been really proud to work at Colt for these last few years. However, my pride has grown over these past few months as I have witnessed our sales team go above and beyond to deliver for our customers during this unprecedented time. Our people have done all they can to ensure our customers have been able to thrive in this new environment and I couldn’t be more exited to lead them into this next period – doing all that I can to continue to optimise and drive our sales operation forward”, Cogan stated.
