Aqua Comms Welcomes New CEO

Aqua Comms, the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network has appointed Nigel Bayliff as its new chief executive officer.

Bayliff should enhance Aqua Comm’s strategic vision of providing data connectivity to Ireland’s digital economy, and accelerate customer growth on Aqua Comms’ existing networks, and guiding exploratory work on planned new routes.

Greg Varisco, who served as the company’s interim CEO, remains a senior executive of Aqua Comms.

“We are excited for Nigel to join the team as our new CEO,” said Varisco. “Nigel’s strategic vision, technological expertise and proven leadership experience with some of the most successful global telecom and subsea cable companies in the world will prove invaluable as Aqua Comms embarks on the next leg of its journey and expands its customer base and networks.”

“I am very pleased to join Aqua Comms and lead the company in its next phase of growth,” states Nigel Bayliff. “Greg Varisco and the Aqua Comms team have worked tirelessly to construct a high-quality transatlantic cable system that combines with diverse terrestrial cables and the existing CeltixConnect cable. The network capitalises on unique routing, high reliability and the latest technology, delivering the first full landing of a web-scale, transoceanic optical cable into Ireland. We will focus initially on facilitating a superhighway to feed the digital economy in Ireland and beyond, securing a proud place in the transatlantic telecommunications market.”
