Meet the wonderfully hard-working, motivated and passionate individuals that make up the iFace Group. Together, they make the iFace Group a friendly and welcoming company.
As CEO, iFace Group is the brainchild of Roger Gooden who set the company up in 2017 after the sale of his previous telecoms company, Globalnet. Roger spent 10 years building Globalnet and founded iFace on the same business fundamentals while wanting to expand the reach within the telecoms and IT sector.
As founder of the first telecoms dealer channel in the UK, Roger focuses on driving business through partners of the group, offering access to an exceptional range of products and expert partner managers. His vision for the group is to expand into all areas of Telecoms and IT, acquiring companies who hold the same values and vision for the service they offer. Roger is most passionate about building a business that people love to be a part of and he works to ensure the right decisions are made to create a successful business environment.
