BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN - TELECOMMUNICATIONS company Progresif Cellular Sdn Bhd announced yesterday that its CEO Paul Hyde will be leaving the firm after having served in the leading role for just over two years.
In a press release, Progresif said that Roger Plahay, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, will assume the role of Acting CEO.
Hyde began his tenure as CEO during the establishment of Progresif in July 2014 after the company acquired operations from the now defunct B-Mobile. About a year later, the company officially launched its new brand and first flagship store in Tanjong Bunut.
Progresif said that the company has had major developments under Hyde’s leadership which includes replacement of its core network, ongoing expansion of network coverage and new cell sites to improve coverage.
The network development project was also given recognition earlier this year during the Asia Communications Awards in which Progresif first place for Project of the Year as well as Brand Campaign of the Year beating out larger telco companies in the region.
Progresif said that the company has started developing solutions to address the needs of corporate, enterprise and government entities alongside their commercial mobile offering after having their licences upgraded the regulatory authorities this year.
Now, the company has a subscriber base of over 150,000 from 20,000.
“Paul leaves the company in a strong position with a robust product and promotional roadmap in place for the fiscal year that will again bring about innovative solutions and more ‘firsts’ for Brunei,” the company said.
