Ernest Cu among world’s most influential telco leaders
For the fifth consecutive year, Globe Telecom’s president Ernest Cu is on the elite list of Global Telecoms Business Power, holding on to his position as one of the most powerful telco executives in the world.
Cu is the only Filipino executive to make it to the Power 100 and among the top 12 in Asia.
GTB, the only magazine and website dedicated for senior executives of telecommunication companies worldwide, said Cu, who has led Globe Telecom in the Philippines since 2008, has watched over its network modernization program and seen the company improve market share.
“This year Globe and rival operator PLDT completed a deal to acquire 700 MHz spectrum for $1.5 billion from San Miguel–despite regulatory opposition,” GTB said.
“The final selection was a long and difficult process, which will inevitably disappoint those who have been left out. When you take an industry that covers nearly every country and connects billions of people; an industry with millions of employees worldwide working for thousands of companies, you have a lot of potential candidates,” GTB added.
