“I look forward to working again with fellow board members Alex Tasker, Bizzy Williams and Sir Kyffin Simpson” remarked O’Brien, who was CEO from November 2008 to April 2013.

“Now that I am a board director, our CEO Conor Looney has my full support in driving the business forward and integrating new businesses into our product offerings to benefit our customers and the overall Barbadian economy,” he said.

Tasker, who brings a wealth of experience in marketing and business development, joined Digicel in September 2006 and held the commercial director role from 2009 until September 2014. Asked about his appointment, the now senior vice president for business development and marketing at ICBL said, “Having previously worked with Digicel I’m now extremely happy to return as a board director. I’ll now be able to offer support and guidance to Conor and his management team, while working alongside my former CEO, Barry O’Brien.”

Digicel Barbados CEO Conor Looney has welcomed the return of both Tasker and O’Brien in their new capacities with open arms.

He remarked, “I would like to formally welcome Alex and Barry back into the Digicel Barbados family. I anticipate that their experience, knowledge and familiarity with customers and staff will serve us well in this period of growth as we continue to focus on delivering the best mobile, home entertainment and business services for our customers across the island.” (PR)
