Digicel founder in PNG

Irish billionaire and owner of Digicel Denis O’Brien is in the country.

O’Brien is the founder, patron and owner of the Digicel Group and Foundation here in Papua New Guinea.

This morning he paid a visit to all the Digicel staff and workers based in Port Moresby.

Upon addressing the Digicel staff and workers, he said: “Any business that makes profit within a market should always give back to the communities from which it draws its strength, through the building and regeneration of these communities. This has always been a fundamental belief of mine and I’m proud to say a core value of Digicel”.

He added that during his visits to Digicel Foundation projects, he was heartened by the tremendous work that was achieved by the Digicel Foundation board and the hard working staff members. He was impressed with how the Foundation has been playing a positive role in people’s lives.

O’Brien said he looks forward to continuing to recognise the accomplishments of the Digicel Foundation and group in the coming years. 

Digicel is one of the fastest growing mobile operators in the Caribbean, Central American and Pacific region and its vision is that as it grows, its communities will grow with it.

The founder concluded by giving his sincere thanks and congratulations to the Foundation’s board and executive staff, and Digicel staff volunteers and workers who give their invaluable support and commitment to our projects and service as a whole.
