SEACOM head of business development resigns

Aidan Baigrie

The business development manager of wholesale broadband services provider SEACOM has resigned, ITWeb Africa has learnt.

Aidan Baigrie, who joined the company in 2009 as business development manager, has called it a day at SEACOM.

It is unclear as to what his next move will be.

SEACOM, which is a privately owned company with five shareholders - including the likes of Remgro Limited and Industrial Promotion Services - completed the landing of its undersea high-speed broadband cable along Africa’s East Coast in 2009. Subsequently, the company says the availability of international bandwidth in countries such as South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania has increased “ten-fold”.

The landing of the SEACOM cable has also been followed by the establishment of other undersea cables, such as the Eastern Africa Submarine Cable System (Eassy) and the West African Cable System (WACS).
