An innovative and results-oriented executive, she is also recognised for her inspirational leadership style, which mobilizes teams around achieving both business and personal goals.

Commenting on her appointment, Geraldine said “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to help further develop the service excellence culture at LIME. The telecommunications solutions that LIME provides are widely recognised as second to none in the industry and I look forward to leading the team in delivering exceptional results as the region’s leading, customer focused telecoms service provider.”

Bill, who is now CEO of LIME’s Cayman Islands business, has worked in telecommunications in several international markets, including the UK, New Zealand and Ireland. He has also worked as a commercial director with the CWC group. More recently he was charged with the responsibility for LIME’s roaming and domestic carrier operations.

Oliver will serve as CEO for LIME Barbados; he has worked extensively in the Caribbean and Central America for another mobile operator and held the position of CEO Southern Caribbean which included Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Suriname, BVI and the Cayman Islands. He has also worked in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

He has successfully managed cellular operations in 15 countries, including Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Martin commented, “the extensive leadership experience that Bill, Oliver and Jan possess, along with their proven track record of success in the global telecommunications industries, fit perfectly with LIME’s vision. We’re extremely pleased to have them leading our Barbados, Cayman Islands and northern Caribbean businesses along the path to continued growth, greater efficiencies and higher levels of innovation and customer satisfaction.”
