Douglas Reed is the chief executive officer of Vox Telecoms.
At the age of 38 Douglas switched industries from hardware to IT. After a stint on a North Sea oil rig at the age of 22, Douglas took over Sandton City Hardware, which was followed by numerous start-ups, including a career as managing director of Mica Distributors and later as a board member of the Mica Hardware group.
Douglas then joined DataPro, an ISP that is now part of Alt-X listed Vox Telecom Limited. He has seen the Groupís value grow from R1.2m eleven years ago to a multi-billion rand business today.
Douglas is innovative and entrepreneurial, and he strongly believes in creating wealth rather than competing for it.
Douglas Reed was previously Vox Telecom Group Managing Director.
