Ramdhani had a “founding role in the Seacom project and was responsible for the development of the business strategy of the submarine cable system along Africa’s east coast to Europe and Asia,” says the company in a statement to TechCentral.
“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.”
“He was also fundamental to Seacom’s fundraising efforts over the years. He and his team raised 50% of the equity required for the Seacom project and completed significant off-take agreements with customers.”
Seacom founder, Brian Herlihy says “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.”
“I am sincerely grateful to Seacom’s shareholders, staff and customers for these many exciting years in which we, together, drove increased access to broadband Internet in Africa,” says Ramdhani. “The social benefit from our efforts has made the years at Seacom more than worthwhile.”
