John Reid, CEO Cable and Wireless Communications

(CNS Business): The regional communication company Cable &Wireless Communications has appointed John Reid as CEO of the company to manage its transition after Liberty Global bought the firm earlier this year. Reid will be based in Miami and is tasked with aligning the former UK-based company with Liberty’s Latin America and Caribbean division, according to a release from C&W, which said he would be expected to seize “significant business-to-business and wholesale opportunities in the region”.

“This is a time of meaningful change and development for C&W, and I am excited for the expertise and continuity that John brings to this growing region,” said Mike Fries, CEO of Liberty Global.

Reid, a Canadian national, has over 28 years of telecommunications and cable television experience, and has “spearheaded complex integrations and pioneered a culture of transformation and engagement”, the firm said. Before he became interim CEO of C&W, Reid served as C&W’s President, Consumer Division and was part of the executive leadership team following the Columbus transaction.

“I am honored to lead C&W Communications into the next phase of our development. I look forward to achieving our growth objectives, creating greater value for our stakeholders, and transforming our employee and customer experience,” Reid said.
