Cable & Wireless Communications has announced that Chris Dehring, Chairman of LIME Jamaica and a member of the senior executive team, has decided to return to the forays of entrepreneurship after six years with the Company.
"On behalf of the Board of Directors and the management and staff of C&W, I want to thank Chris for his outstanding contributions to our business during his time with the Company," said Phil Bentley, C&W's CEO.
Chris orchestrated new emergency legislation and the regulatory rulings that redressed the anomalies in the Jamaican telecommunications market, paving the way for the company to grow its mobile subscriber base from just over 200k to 900k currently. He was instrumental in reviving the LIME brand (now Flow), and business with innovative marketing and innovations such as LIME Skool Aid which continues today.
Considered a maverick among his peers, Chris played a key role in the regulatory approval negotiations across the region to facilitate the successful merger with Columbus International.
Prior to joining C&W, Chris earned a solid reputation in Jamaica and across the Caribbean as a marketing specialist and entrepreneur.
