Digicel’s Caribbean CEO steps down
Digicel’s Vanessa Slowey has stepped down as chief executive officer for the company in the Caribbean and Central America.
She has been with the company for 15 years, initially in the Caribbean before becoming CEO of Digicel in Asia Pacific.
She returned to the Caribbean to head up the Caribbean and Central America business in August 2016, where she was instrumental in spearheading and leading the Digicel 2030 global transformation programme.
Alex Matuschka, Digicel Group CEO, said: “Vanessa has a distinguished track record in Digicel and we are so grateful to her for all she has done. She leaves a business that is considerably advanced in its transformation agenda where customers are starting to feel the benefits of being in control of their communications and entertainment experience as we work to connect them to the things they love most.”
Denis O’Brien, chairman of Digicel Group, expressed deep gratitude to Ms Slowey, and said: “With 15 amazing years with Digicel, she has effectively ‘grown up’ in the company and our many successes and achievements are hers. As we move to the next phase of our Digicel global transformation programme and Vanessa moves on to pursue new opportunities, I would like — both personally and professionally — to wish her the very best for the future.”
Ms Slowey described it as “an amazing journey” and said she wished the team well as Digicel enters its next phase”.
