Stafford appointed CEO of Digicel Bermuda
Paul Stafford is the new chief executive officer of Digicel’s operations in Bermuda.
He is Digicel Bermuda’s third CEO since July 2014, and he will also lead the Bermuda Telephone Company.
Mr Stafford replaces Robin Seale, who served as CEO from 2015 until last month when he returned to Ireland.
Having joined Digicel’s Asia Pacific operations in 2009 as sales and distribution director in Fiji, Mr Stafford was later promoted to CEO of Nauru, Tonga and Vanuatu.
Three years ago he was promoted to a regional CEO role within the Pacific Group, where he was responsible for re-engineering and restructuring the procurement and distribution functions, expanding media products and mobile advertising and launching Pan-Pacific TV.
Following the news of his appointment to lead Digicel Bermuda and BTC, Mr Stafford said: “One of the great things about operating a global brand like Digicel is that the focus remains the same regardless of where we are — and that is to provide our customers with a superior network and an amazing experience.
“We have a great business and a great team here in Bermuda and an even greater opportunity to grow the business further so I’m looking forward to working with my team and continue delivering on our commitment to our customers. ”
Vanessa Slowey, Digicel CEO for Caribbean and Central America, said: “Paul has been a part of the Digicel family for a long time and has played an integral role in the success of the business over the years. His experience, creativity and immeasurable skills will propel the Bermuda business and position it strongly for the future.”
Meanwhile, Digicel Bermuda Board member, Charles Marshall, said: “I believe Paul will bring a new direction to the company, and working together with all members of the Bermuda team, will increase customer satisfaction and keep us on the leading edge of technology.
“The company will grow from strength to strength with his vision and leadership. I look forward to working with them all in the best interests of Bermuda.”
