As VP Sales for Angola Cables, he is currently responsible for global strategy and business development on core company geographies plus, dealing with key customers, he drives the relationship while advising on best solutions and partnerships to achieve sales growth.

As a C-level representative he has a comprehensive understanding of the projects and global network value proposition:

The Monet subsea cable network which has been in operation since the end of 2017 that connects Santos, in São Paulo to Fortaleza, Brazil to Boca Raton in the USA.  

The recently commissioned South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) linking Luanda, Angola to Fortaleza in Brazil. The SACS cable is the first and fastest link between Africa and the Americas with the lowest latency and provides a more direct routing for internet traffic in the Southern Hemisphere.

The third project is the upgrade to the Angola Cable’s Tier III Data Centre in Praia do Futuro on the Ceará coast of Brazil. The data centre incorporates the SACS and Monet submarine cable landing stations. The advanced upgrades being made to the data and collocation centre are due to be completed in April 2019.

Info

Unique among independent cable operators, Seaborn fully operates and maintains its submarine and terrestrial cable infrastructure. POPs, terrestrial backhaul, landing stations and subsea cable are all under Seaborn’s control, regardless of who the anchor tenant or other customer may be. Seaborn also has its own primary and disaster recovery NOCs. And we activate capacity faster than anyone else in the industry.

Our customers tend to be those large consumers of bandwidth who value being able to work directly with the underlying cable operator on transoceanic routes.
