Pioneer Consulting Elevates Leadership Team

Pioneer Consulting, an international telecom engineering firm specializing in undersea fiber optic cables, proudly announces the elevation of two of its key leaders and also welcomes the addition of a new Director of Client Solutions, the company said.

The moves solidify Pioneer Consulting´s role as the industry´s renowned provider of engineering solutions and strategic intelligence, while enhancing its ability to deliver cost-effective, responsive services to clients.

Keith Schofield, a provider of Pioneer Consulting for the last 13 years, will adopt the role of Strategic Advisor on July 1. Since joining the firm as its Director of Submarine Networks in 2007, he has overseen some of the industry´s most complex telecom infrastructure projects. Schofield then soon became a Managing Partner in Pioneer Consulting where his role expanded to include a strategic growth program built around a new Custom Consulting portfolio. His new title allows him to trade his project-specific responsibilities for a key role in guiding the firm´s long-term market strategy.

Succeeding Schofield, Tully will join Howard Kidorf as Pioneer Consulting´s Managing Partner. A 12-year industry veteran, Tully served for three years as Pioneer Consulting´s Director of Submarine Solutions before being named Partner in 2018. His success as Solutions Manager for SubCom´s Oil & Gas division was built on more than four years as a System Engineer with the firm, where he provided engineering design and oversight for critical submarine telecommunications projects and led the division´s Product Development team.

Marie brings a rare combination of engineering expertise and corporate leadership to his new position. After a successful eight-year tenure as Director of Engineering in Gulf Bridge International (GBI), Marie also served as Indian Ocean Xchange´s (IOX) Chief Technology Officer. Planning to be based in Dubai, his vast experience will also strengthen Pioneer Consulting´s already solid footprint in the Middle East where Pioneer Consulting´s permitting division is headquartered.

Pioneer Consulting offers a comprehensive set of services for the submarine fiber optic telecommunication system industry including turnkey project management, financial and technical due diligence, engineering and implementation and market and technical studies.
