    How can Ms Rans operate as a non-executive director to the BAS Group, when Ms Rans new position is to be the CEO of Digicel. It’s no secret that Digicel is probably the main competitor to the CCS Group, and the CCS Group is one of the sub companies in the BAS Group of companies. How can the BAS board allow this, only in Bermuda I guess?

    • Telecom says:

      How is BAS Group/CCS the main competitor to Digicel? In what aspect? CCS provides full service IT support whereas Digicel provides Voice, Data and Internet.

      I believe if Ms. Rans went to One Communications, then your statement would be correct.

    Hope she knows what she’s getting into at Digicel.
