Hong Kong, August 31, 2011: Bhupinder Singh has been appointed as the Country Manager for Cable&Wireless Worldwide's Hong Kong operations. Based out of Hong Kong, he will hold this new position in addition to his current role as the Vice President for Delivery, Asia-Pacific for the mission critical communications provider.
Bhupinder has over 16 years of experience in successfully delivering strategic programmes across private and public industry sectors including telecommunications, banking, utilities, manufacturing and oil & gas.
Hong Kong is a key hub for the company’s Asia Pacific business, supporting the needs of many of the world’s biggest banking, financial services, manufacturing and high-technology brands. In the last year, Cable&Wireless Worldwide has extended its world-class network in Asia Pacific with the commissioning of its own backhaul network in Hong Kong. In addition, it has also secured a Unified Carrier Licence from the Hong Kong Telecoms Authority, which allows it to provide and operate a public internal telecoms network and sell an expanded scope of telecoms services to customers.
"Bhupinder is a senior member of the Asia management team and has worked with Cable&Wireless Worldwide in various roles for more than a decade. His appointment as the country manager of our Hong Kong office demonstrates our continued commitment to Hong Kong and allows us to better serve the mission critical communications needs of our clients there," says Mike Powell, Vice President, Service Delivery, Global Markets at Cable&Wireless Worldwide.
Bhupinder, who was appointed to the role last month, has an engineering degree in Computer Sciences and an MBA from the Anderson School of Management, UCLA.
