    We cannot find a strong professional local to do this job!? It pains me to see this in 2017 that Digicel continues to ignore the talent in this country. Why o why do we continue to support this?!

    A new direction, backwards. Digicel made 50 forcrd redundancies and most of the senior managemnet team have left as didn’t agree with the direction. CTO, COO, CFO, VP Premises, CEO, CCO, General Counsel, Head of Retail, VP networks, entire finance department and the list goes on. Serious issues with current environment and strategy.

    So Digicel is “officially” announcing their new CEO. Thanks, Digicel. But where were the adverts for the role of CEO? The company has had at least two local CEOs (Cheryl Packwood and Wayne Caines) that I can remember. So there are clearly Bermudians who can do the job. Why wasn’t the role advertised?

    Digicel is in serious trouble. Company has no direction and is clearly a hotbed.
