WIND Mobile has over 750,000 wireless subscribers, and last month moved ‘into an exciting new phase’ as, pending regulatory approval, Globalive Capital acquired complete ownership of the carrier from VimpleCom.
In an interview with us last month, CEO and Chairman Tony Lacavera, said, “We now have a stable, long-term ownership, a consortium of very sophisticated investors that see the long-term viability, and long-term business plan… I feel like our business plan, and WIND itself, has been validated. For now it’s business as usual, and WIND is here to stay.”
We’ve been informed that Pietro Cordova as been promoted to lead WIND in its new direction and will assume the role as CEO. Cordova has been with WIND Mobile Canada since July 2012 as its COO, and has been with international WIND Mobile in various capacities since 2005. Lacavera will remain board as Chairman and a shareholder.
Cordova stated, “It has been a pleasure working with Tony for the last two years and I look forward to continue working with him in his new capacity at WIND. WIND 2.0 is on solid ground, and I look forward to providing my ongoing support and leadership to the organization as we enter a very exciting phase in the life of WIND.”
