Seacom loses chief strategy officer
SEACOM announced today that its Chief Strategy Officer, Suveer Ramdhani, who has been with the company since its launch in2009, has resigned.
Mr Ramdhani initially oversaw SEACOM’s product development before assuming his current role as Chief Strategy Officer, where he has been responsible for overseeing SEACOM’s strategy, market development and M&A activity for the past six years.
He recently concluded the acquisition of FibreCo Telecommunications, which has positioned SEACOM to operate a network that runs along South Africa’s highest-traffic transmission routes and links all major South African cities to SEACOM’s submarine cable assets. He was also fundamental to SEACOM’s fundraising efforts over the years.

Brian Herlihy, founder, shareholder, and Chairperson of SEACOM’s Investment and Strategy Subcommittee thanked Mr Ramdhani for his contributions through the years and wished him the very best with his future endeavours. “Suveer has been a cornerstone of our business, driving growth strategies for new products and services, new markets and transformative acquisitions.
His efforts have led SEACOM from a project into a diversified and sustainable telco.”Mr Ramdhani said, “I am sincerely grateful to SEACOM’s shareholders, staff and customers for these many exciting years in which we, together, drove increased access to broadband Internet in Africa. The social benefit from our efforts has made the years at SEACOM more than worthwhile.”
