Digicel CEO Charlier steps down
Digicel has appointed the new chief executive of its operations in the Caribbean and Central America region after Jean-Yves Charlier announced he was stepping down from the role of Digicel Group CEO for family reasons.
The new man at the helm is Oliver Coughlan, who was formerly CEO of Digicel Pacific Ltd.
Digicel is the parent company of Digicel Bermuda.
In a statement, the company said Mr Charlier had successfully completed the group's deleveraging process, and he would remain with the company as a non-executive director.
Denis O'Brien, Digicel's chairman and founder, said: “We are grateful to Jean-Yves for stepping into the breach as CEO in January 2019 following the sad and untimely passing of our former CEO. After 18 months of intense travel and achievement for the group, we totally respect Jean Yves' decision to be closer to his family in London. I thank him most sincerely for his significant contribution to our business.”
Mr O'Brien said Mr Coughlan was a natural choice for the role of chief executive of Digicel's operations in the Caribbean and Central America, given his industry and leadership experience.
