Farid Mohammed is the first local Chief Executive Officer for Digicel Fiji since the start of its operations in the country in 2008.

Originally from Lautoka, he previously served as the Chief Financial Officer for four years prior to taking up the CEO role in Samoa in 2017.

He had been serving since 2006 in other Digicel Pacific markets, including Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Fiji and Tonga in various roles.

“I think one thing that I pride myself with is that Digicel is building a local talent agency,” Mr Mohammad said.

“I’m very proud of the team that we have and that’s something that we know we’ve invested a lot in building over the years.”

 

How Many Places Have You Visited Around Fiji?

I have visited a few places around Fiji.

I’m from the West and love my hometown Rakiraki.

I have also been to Savusavu and Labasa on work trips.

I have also been to Plantation Island Resort and Mana Island.

A beautiful scene on Mana Island in the Mamanucas - such scenes is something which attracts so many tourists to Fiji.
