KINGSTON, Jamaica, Monday October 12, 2015 – Former chairman of LIME Jamaica Chris Dehring has left the telecommunications company.
Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) disclosed in a statement that Dehring, who was a member of the company’s senior management team, has decided to return to entrepreneurship after six years with the company. His exit was effective last Wednesday.
“On behalf of the board of directors and the management and staff of CWC I want to thank Chris for his outstanding contributions to our business during his time with the company,” said Phil Bentley, CWC’s chief executive officer.
“Chris has been a key leader in our business, spearheading the largest market in the Caribbean for over six years as chairman, and building a solid foundation to drive growth and profitability in one of our most important markets.”
Bentley said Dehring’s “outstanding reputation throughout the Caribbean and strategic acumen” proved invaluable to the success of the merger with Columbus Communications.
“On a personal note, I’d like to thank Chris for working so closely and effectively with me on gaining the support across the Caribbean for the acquisition of Columbus – this has been a game changer for CWC.”
Dehring was instrumental in reviving the LIME brand (now FLOW), and business with innovative marketing.
Commenting on his tenure, Dehring said: “It was an honour to serve with so many outstanding colleagues at Cable & Wireless Communications and to be able to close this remarkable era of my career by playing such an integral role in finalizing what undoubtedly is a transformational merger with Columbus.”
