SEACOM Chief Strategy Officer Suveer Ramdhani Resigns

Seacom chief strategy officer Suveer Ramdhani, who has played an integral role in the telecommunications company since its launch in 2009, has resigned.

He initially was responsible for the companies product development before being assumed his current role as Chief Strategy Officer in 2014. In this role he has been responsible for overseeing SEACOM’s strategy, market development, and mergers and acquisition.

This includes SEACOM’s recent acquisition of FibreCo, which has enabled the company to operate a network that links all major South African cities to SEACOM’s submarine cables.

“He recently concluded the acquisition of FibreCo Telecommunications, which has positioned Seacom to operate a network that runs along South Africa’s highest-traffic transmission routes and links all major South African cities to Seacom’s submarine cable assets,” the company said in a statement.

Suveer has been a cornerstone of our business, driving growth strategies for new products and services, new markets and transformative acquisitions. His efforts have led SEACOM from a project into a diversified and sustainable telco.

Speaking to TechCentral on Friday, Ramdhani said he plans to “take some time off to explore a few options before jumping into the next gig”. He said he has “a few things lined up” already, but that it’s too early to talk about them.
