Digicel announced last week that it was changing its chief executive officer in Trinidad and Tobago. Niall Dorrian, who has been CEO of Digicel Trinidad and Tobago since 2007, will be taking up the role as interim CEO of the company's business in Panama.
In Dorrian's place, Digicel is bringing in John Delves as its new CEO of Trinidad and Tobago. Delves is currently the general manager of Digicel OECS North – a role he has held since coming to the Caribbean in 2010 from Digicel Fiji where he was CEO. Prior to that, John was CEO of Digicel Vanuatu.
In a statement, Digicel said: "Throughout his tenure at Digicel, John has been responsible for propelling outstanding growth in terms of customers and driving revenues. "He's held fast to Digicel's tenets to provide excellent service, network and value and outreaches to its communities."
The telecommunications company said that the changes will take effect during April. "Digicel would like to thank Niall for his service in Trinidad and Tobago and to wish John the best of luck in his new role. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their loyalty to Digicel."
After ten years of operation, Digicel Group Limited has over 11 million customers across its 31 markets in the Caribbean, Central America and the Pacific. The Digicel statement said that in his new position in Panama, Dorrian will bring to bear the wealth of experience and knowledge he has acquired during his tenure at the helm of our Trinidad and Tobago business.
"In what is a highly competitive environment, he was able to drive five years of fantastic growth and achievement in terms of customer numbers and revenues," said Digicel about Dorrian. According to the company: "Customer confidence was amplified under his watch, always delivering on Digicel's commitment to best value, service and network and to giving back to its communities.
"A focus on innovation and unique promotions are some of the defining aspects of his leadership, during which time there was a quantum leap in subscribers to data plans and corporate client acquisitions. He leaves in his wake, a strong team and a company poised to take Trinidad and Tobago into the next cutting edge phase of telecommunications."
