Multi-product reseller (MPR) platform Prvidr enables brands to offer clients a wider range of services by entering new industries and retailing utilities, telecoms and cloud services. Prvidr currently supports household brands, such as Coles and Catch.com.au, as well as providing unique multi-brand services to Macquarie Telecom, Moose Mobile and Vaya/Amaysim.
Launched in 2015, Prvidr has grown rapidly, scaling from five staff to over sixty employees, and from three Australian clients to more than fifteen clients across the Asia Pacific region.
Most recently Prvidr has collaborated with SingTel Optus to enable both large-scale retail brands to launch new telcommunication products and services, as well as new market entrants to rapidly and cost effectively enter new verticals such as telecommunications.
What does Joss bring to Prvidr in his new role?
New Chief Executive Officer, David Joss, will lead the company as it further expands its client base and industry verticals. Joss’s most recent role was CEO of Southern Phone where he successfully led the business through its sale to AGL in 2019. He was also previously CEO of Bendigo Bank Telco, CEO of Community Telco Australia, and an executive with Singtel Optus.
Prvidr Managing Director Matt Goodlet said this experience makes David Joss uniquely qualified to lead Prvidr. “David’s rich heritage building virtual brands across banking, telcos, retail and energy are the exact competencies needed to operate and grow Prvidr. There simply isn’t a better CEO candidate and we are thrilled to have him join us,” Goodlet said.
What were Joss’ thoughts on the new role?
Joss said he was excited to be joining Prvidr at this pivotal time. “I look forward to leading the growth of the business and building on the foundations that have been laid,” he said.
Joss said there are rich opportunities in the market for Prvidr and that it has an important role to play in supporting companies to enable their adjacencies and support customers.
“Telcos will enter the energy sector, energy operators will enter telecoms, and both should be providing their clients with appropriate cloud services. It’s all about leveraging the customer relationship and bringing together multiple products in a simple and effective channel. Enabling MPRs to deliver on this vision of a one-customer-multi-service business model is a complex undertaking, but something Prvidr has a track record of achieving,” Joss further said.
“My joining Prvidr is as much a vote of confidence in the business and technology platform the team has built over the past seven years, as it is in the market opportunity,” said Joss.
