Aaron Batten

Head of Fiber USA

Hi, nice to meet you I’m Aaron, a few facts about me:

  • I collect records, anything from Tony Bennet to Sister Sledge to Danny Brown. 
  •  I don’t own a hairbrush (shock). 
  •  Love a pint of Guinness – it’s just not the same in the US. 

I head up the Fiber and Construction USA team at Hamilton Barnes. 

We support the following types of clients:

  • Global and rural ISP’s
  • Full Turn-Key Providers
  • Construction/Installation Partners
  • Utility Providers
  • Design Partners 

As a team, we have placed circa 450 candidates for the above client types across Technician, Engineering, Management and Executive level roles. 

Some success stories include:

  • Consulted a Pennsylvania based ISP from a startup to a fully functional operation within 3 months. They now have over 15,000 customers and have brought OSP construction inhouse. 
  • Helped a Utility design partner create a specialist telecoms team by firstly finding them a leader within the telecom space, then building out their OSP Design and Project Management division. They work with clients like AT&T & Google Fiber. 
  • Helped a full-turnkey provider win multiple contracts for rural ISP’s by finding them reliable talent who were willing to travel with the work. 

Whether you are a Mom-and-Pop shop, a global provider or just looking for a new opportunity, come to us for a consultative and thorough approach to staffing.
