Tuesday, October 1, 2013
GLOBE Telecom president and CEO Ernest L. Cu is among 12 finalists for the CEO of the Year category in the 2013 World Communication Awards (WCA), one of the most important awards within the telecoms industry.
It is organized by Total Telecom, a leading source of news and reports of the global communications industry.
Cu ranks high together with telecom industry leaders AT&T’s Randall L. Stephenson, SK Telecom’s Sung Min Ha, Verizon’s Lowell C. McAdam, and Vodafone’s Vittorio Colao.
The winner will be decided based on the results of an industry poll, open to professionals from across the globe.
The 12 contenders represent major global operators, emerging market players and disruptive new kids on the block.
As president and CEO, Cu has been the driving force behind Globe Telecom’s continued success. Through his leadership, Globe has accelerated its growth momentum from 2012 all the way to the current year as it set new records, moved closer to superior customer experience, and marched steadfastly towards long-term competitiveness with the near completion of its network transformation program.
Last year, Cu received the CEO of the Year (Service Provider) award from global business research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan during the 9th Annual Asia Pacific ICT awards ceremony in Singapore.
Now in its 15th year, the World Communication Awards celebrates the organizations and individuals responsible for the innovations that underpin the telecoms industry and will carry it through into a brighter future.
The Awards are open to all communications providers, whether they are a traditional carrier, service provider, multimedia content provider or another organization providing a communication service.
Winners of the 2013 WCA will be announced at the gala dinner to be held at The Lancaster Hotel in London on December 3, 2013. (PR)
