Radha Krishna Sharma has been appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Guyana Telephone & Telegraph Company (GT&T) and Justin Nedd, Chief Financial Officer, a release from GT&T today said.

Former CEO Yog Mahadeo resigned last year and temporary arrangements had to be put in place.

GT&T added that Sharma brings to the job over 18 years of executive management expertise and a wealth of knowledge in finance, commerce, business strategy and corporate expansion.

The release quoted Sharma as saying “I am excited about joining the GT&T team and continuing to provide consumers the best value in Guyana in terms of telecommunications services.  GT&T continues to invest in Guyana and bring more advanced services to our people. I look forward to being a part of this continued evolution”.

His appointment takes effect from March 1, 2013.

Nedd, the release said, is an accounting professional with diverse experience and qualifications in a number of industries including telecommunications, government, manufacturing, and mining.
