If you’re “charismatic, results-driven” and have experience in competitive business environments, then this call may be for you.
The Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd (TSTT) has officially started its search for a new Chief Executive Officer.
And the aforementioned attributes are what the telecommunications giant says it is looking for in a prospective candidate.
The vacancy at TSTT arises from the resignation of Dr Ronald Walcott on October 1.
Walcott served as TSTT’s CEO for six years.
Lisa Agard has been acting as the company’s CEO since Walcott’s departure
TSTT is jointly owned by National Enterprises Limited (NEL) which in turn is majority-owned by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, and Cable & Wireless (West Indies) Limited, (C&W).
NEL owns 51 per cent of TSTT’s issued share capital, while C&W holds 49 per cent.
“TSTT is T&T’s largest and most advanced provider of integrated communications solutions to the residential and commercial markets. Its leading-edge products are designed around an IP-based core infrastructure and marketed under its bmobile brand,” it stated.
“The CEO reports to the Board of Directors, and is responsible for the provision of effective leadership and strategic direction that addresses the competitive challenges facing the business and the maintenance of TSTT’s position as a world-class communications solutions provider and leading brand of telecommunications services,” TSTT stated.
TSTT’s board is chaired by Sean Roach.
Roach was appointed to that position on February 7 last year.
The company is calling for prospective candidates for CEO to have demonstrated experience in “major turnaround initiatives and managing change, with a focus on embedding an excellent customer experience; developing strategic plans to increase profitability and market share, and balancing long-term shareholder value maximisation with short term business results.”
“The incumbent should have the ability to lead in a complex environment involving multiple stakeholders and will possess excellent strategic, leadership and communication skills, and be politically adept,” it stated.
“Candidates should be financially astute in a commercially constrained environment. Significant experience in general management, including the leadership and coaching of senior executives across core functions is essential,” TSTT stated.
Applicants should have a Post Graduate degree in Business Administration from a recognised business school as well as a minimum of ten years’ experience in senior management positions in telecommunications or other industries with significant technology and customer satisfaction elements.
The closing date for applications is the end of this month.
