APTProcure: Innovation in Infrastructure Value Maximization
APTProcure Press Release
December 15, 2022
APTelecom today announced that Jeffrey Fraser has been named as the new Managing Partner of APTProcure, effective immediately. With over 25 years in the telecommunications industry, serving in varying capacities, Mr. Fraser brings extensive industry knowledge and business operations experience to his new role.
APTProcure lives and breathes the global telecom infrastructure marketplace on a daily basis. Based on leading and proven innovation in network infrastructure value maximization, APTProcure operates at the intersection of ‘know how’, ‘know who’ and ‘know why’ in the ever-evolving race to bring content closer to end-users globally.
APTProcure, the investment arm of APTelecom, was founded in 2022 to identify and capitalize on key secular trends in subsea cable and edge data centers. In December 2022, APTelecom was awarded the prestigious Telecom Review Excellence Award for Most Innovative SDN Wan Solutions in Dubai, UAE.
“Jeff is a natural fit,” said Eric Handa, Co-founder and CEO of APTelecom. “He has been a member of the APTelecom Advisory Board for over a decade, so he is very familiar with our core business and investment strategy.”
Sean Bergin, co-founder and President of APTelecom and President & Chair of PTC (Pacific Telecommunications Council) added, “We are excited for Jeff to drive this new phase at APTProcure as we evolve our subsea cable and edge data center investments into operating entities.”
Through its unique strategic position in the global telecom infrastructure marketplace, APTProcure has the ability to spot opportunities and rapidly assess the entrepreneurs behind them and potential for success long before others can notice – often at a stage that is too early or investment size that is too small for traditional Venture Capital or Private Equity.
