Digicel on Friday announced Justin Morin as the new incoming Chief Executive Officer for its Jamaica operations.  

A dynamic Jamaican who has enjoyed success on the international stage, Morin brings over seventeen years’ experience and a solid track record spanning multiple industries including Telecommunications, Finance, Fast-moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and Manufacturing.  

Morin returns to home soil after eight years of working abroad with his most recent role being as Director of Corporate Strategy with Saudi Telecom - the leading telecommunications group in the Middle East – where he spearheaded the successful development and execution of the company’s strategic growth plan with a focus on maximising opportunities in the converged technology and digital space.

The St George’s College Old Boy also spent seven years at GraceKennedy – one of Jamaica’s largest and most dynamic Food and Finance corporate entities – working in several roles in investment, manufacturing and operations before joining global consultancy firm with specialisation in telecoms, Delta Partners, where he served as a Senior Principal.   

Excited about his new role and the opportunity to rekindle his family connections, Morin said; “It’s an exciting time for Digicel and our customers and I’m thrilled to be joining this dynamic brand at a time when we’re transforming for the future. I’m looking forward to working with an already fantastic team to deliver a superior network, compelling content and amazing experiences to our customers. My wife and I are also very excited to be returning home to Jamaica and raising our twin daughters right here where we both grew up.”

Meanwhile, Digicel Jamaica Board members, Harry Smith and Tony Chang, were happy to welcome Morin to the team, saying; “this is a real game changer for the Jamaican market and we look forward to working with Justin.”

In welcoming Morin to the Digicel family, Vanessa Slowey, CEO for Digicel Caribbean and Central America, said;

“Justin has a wealth of experience and a depth of knowledge in telecommunications and I’m delighted to be welcoming him to the team. As a returning Jamaican, he will bring a fresh perspective to our team at a time when we’re well advanced on our 2030 transformation journey. I am confident that Justin will take Digicel Jamaica to the next level ensuring the best communications and entertainment experience for all our customers.”
