Prior to this, the new CEO held the role of Head of Consumer Sales & Services, and focused heavily on delivering operational efficiencies and consumer sales excellence.

her appointment and I know that she will deliver amazing things for our customers and our team in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.”

Commenting on her appointment as CEO, Barbour-Charles said; “I am proud to be part of a company that has taken the region from strength to strength. I was there in 2003 when Digicel democratised communication in St. Vincent & the Grenadines, ending the long-held monopoly and I was there in 2020 when we relaunched as a Digital Operator, enabling customers to live their best digital lives. Now, as CEO, I am excited to take Digicel SVG to the next level, through investments in the right technology and keeping our customers at the heart of all we do.”
