Emtelle, a leading global manufacturer of blown fibre, cabling and ducted network solutions for the FTTX industry, today announced it has appointed three new members to its sales and solutions teams.
The expansion comes as Emtelle grows its telecoms departments in the United Kingdom and Sweden in response to rising market demands for more advanced and innovative FTTX solutions.
The new appointments include:
Johan Schalin, Swedish Sales Director, Emtelle
Johan Schalin has been appointed as Swedish Sales Director. With a background spanning more than two decades in telecoms, working with Swedish wholesaler, Elektroskandia and Ericsson among others, Johan brings a wealth of knowledge in FTTX and the global telecoms markets.

Johan has an acute level of understanding of the Swedish telecoms market and will use that to tap into the huge potential for growth that 2019 will bring. Looking to the future, Johan predicts a wave of growth in rural locations where fibre provision is becoming highly sought, and with greater density than ever before. Johan will be integral to Emtelle’s journey to provide not only flexible solutions for new and existing customers but also to be able to offer emerging solutions, effectively through efficient provision for FTTX roll-out across Sweden and the Nordics.
