Rethink Team

Peter White

CEO and Co-Founder, Rethink Technology Research

2 v2

Peter White has been involved in technology since 1978 and is now the CEO of Rethink Technology Research and helped create the company in 2002.

Peter focuses his research on video and all the technologies which allow it to traverse digital networks. He has consulted with set top and home gateway manufacturers, encoder specialists, chip vendors, flash memory providers, security companies and TV UI specialists over the past 15 years.  His coverage area takes in recommendation systems, VoD servers, OTT enablers, content metadata, natural language search, LCD and OLED panels, WiFi and underlying broadband technologies such as DOCSIS, ADSL, G.Fast, and fiber. So it goes from chips and hardware, through to software and the cloud, and it is everything that relates to video, from glass (the camera) to glass (the screen).

Peter is the principal analyst on Faultline, a digital media research service offered by Rethink Technology Research. He also works with Thomas Flanagan on its research arm Rethink TV.

Caroline Gabriel

Research Director & Co-Founder, Rethink Technology Research

Caroline Gabriel

Caroline left the Dutch publishing and research conglomerate VNU, at the top of the organization, as European Editorial Director in 2002, to help create Rethink Technology Research.

She has been explaining technology to people for almost 30 years and has conducted research assignments for most of the major businesses in the sector including The European Commission, Intel, LightSquared, Vodafone, Amdocs, the Small Cell Forum, the Wireless Broadband Alliance, Ofcom as well as start-ups like SpiderCloud, Deltenna and BLiNQ Networks.

She has also partnered with other analyst groups in joint projects including RealWireless, the Yankee Group, Maravedis and ArcChart.

The irony is that while Caroline works in a subject very much of the future, she studied History at Oxford University, although she always makes it clear that history has a habit of repeating itself, even within technology.

Caroline has spoken and chaired many conferences and is a well- known and respected figure within the LTE and 5G community.

She operates as the company’s Research Director and is expert in all forms of Wireless communication and has edited our research service Wireless Watch, since its inception in 2002 and leads our RAN Research forecasts and also finds time to conduct consulting assignments for a wide variety of wireless businesses.

If you want to email Caroline, ask her a question or invite her to attend or speak at an event, then please email her at [email protected] and we will forward it to her.

Chloe Spring

Marketing Manager


I joined Rethink Research at the beginning of 2018 with huge excitement. I came from an agency background with proud campaign successes working with charities like The Woodland Trust, Guide Dogs and St Johns Ambulance, as well as other big-name companies such as Legal and General. Achieving notable brand awareness triumphs and reductions in cost per sales for my all clients, I was ready for the challenge of heading a marketing department. Prior to that I created a social media presence of a small coffee company and helped run and market huge national trade shows.

I am very happy to be bringing enthusiasm, positivity, passion, energy and a fresh eye to the company! Along with my skills in social media engagement, relationship building and raising brand awareness. One of the main things I love about working at Rethink Research is having an office dog who’s called Albert, who also brings a lot of positivity, energy and enthusiasm!

Phil Hunter

Riot Editor and Senior Analyst of Rethink TV

3 v3

I joined Rethink Research full time at the start of 2018 because of the growth in popularity of the Riot and Faultline publications, having previously spent over 30 years as a journalist and analyst covering science, technology and media.

I first contributed to Faultline in 2010 and revelled in the freedom to develop stories and ideas subject to the rules of libel and consistency with Rethink’s positioning. We take a collective opinion on great issues of the day in technology and media. These may evolve in the light of changing circumstances but in that case, we explain our stance has changed.

My background is scientific and technology having studied mathematics at Cambridge University and I believe I bring an analytical eye to breaking stories and events. At Rethink I enjoy tackling a range of subjects across media, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, aiming to delve beneath the bonnet and relate the underlying technology to the business realities.

Rethink Research has allowed me to explore my interests in technology, particularly in LPWAN, enterprise transformation, AI, and autonomous vehicles. Riot Research and Riot’s subscription service has given me the platform to follow my interests – to explore, analyse and forecast the future of these emerging technologies.

I joined Rethink Research in 2014 having graduated from Greenwich University in Biomedical Science.

Rethink Research threw me into becoming one of the editors for the industry-renowned digital entertainment technology publications, Faultline Online Reporter. What makes me enjoy working here is I have been given a platform to become an expert in the intricacies of video delivery and security. I love that we provide unrivalled detail, while not sugar coating how tough the future will be and we provide our readers with a framework for surviving shifting industry trends.

John Constant

Account Management Director

9 v3

I joined Rethink Research in 2015 after running my own startup, I studied Civil Engineering at Coventry University before moving into IT where I started as an analyst. This is where I provided hardware, software and network support, where I quickly progressed into support/service management, project management, operations and account management.  Due to the technical and operational experience I had, I could understand challenges that customers faced, moving me into B2B sale after being certified by Microsoft, Cisco, HP, Citrix, VmWare and IBM.

Having worked with SMB’s through to Enterprise, and having brought products to market, I have the experience to deal with all aspects of Rethink Research. I have enjoyed working closely with operators, vendors and manufacturers in the wireless, telecoms and IoT industry which makes Rethink Research the perfect place to work.

Roz Hilton

Client Services Manager


I joined Rethink Research in 2015 having previously worked freelance within the construction and surveying industry. I have undertaken administration projects for Hill International, the global leader in managing construction risk, and for The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, where I was involved in organising the prestigious RICS Awards. Helping a tech start-up to construct a golfing app is probably one of the more unusual projects I have worked on.

I bring with me a broad range of skills, covering all aspects of running an office in a busy, fast-paced environment. I particularly enjoy event planning. One of the best things about working at Rethink is the opportunity to grow and develop within the company. And there’s the added bonus of flexible working, affording a good work-life balance.
