Six months after taking up the post of Chief Executive Officer of Digicel (Barbados) Limited., Johnny Ingle is calling it quits.
In a statement today, Ingle cited family commitments as the reason for his decision to leave the post, which he took up back in June.
“It is obviously an extremely difficult decision to step out of the role, however, it is a personal decision driven solely by the most important thing in my life, my family,” said Ingle, whose departure from Digicel comes after eight years with the telecommunications giant.
He joined the Digicel Group Operations Team in 2008 and quickly moved to the position of Commercial Director for Haiti before adopting similar roles in Antigua & Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and CEO roles in Dominica, then St Kitts & Nevis markets.
“Simply, I have family commitments to attend to and as a result need to step down to address them. To be clear, my commitment to and passion for Digicel is unwavering. Digicel is a phenomenal business and Digicel Barbados has a phenomenal team and future, with very exciting products, plans & services.”
Assuring that the company would be left in good hands, the ever upbeat Ingle continued, “It has been a great honour and privilege to serve my Digicel team and I say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the truly extraordinary people of Barbados for your great kindness and support during my time as CEO here.”
