In a statement, the telecommunications firm said: “Alex died suddenly yesterday whilst on holiday with his family in Germany.
“No words can adequately express our sadness at Alex’s passing or our gratitude for having worked with him.
“Digicel has lost a committed, hard-working and exceptional Chief Executive. We have lost a dear friend.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Julia and his three children at this very difficult time.”
