I view Digicel’s progress implementing Digicel 2030 as a truly ground-breaking initiative and an opportunity to transform our customers’ communications and entertainment experience. In my view, Digicel has first mover advantage in its customer engagement evolution and I aim to ensure we capitalise on that for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
