Today, we get one step closer to offering Canadians more choice, innovation and affordability when it comes to their wireless provider by bringing an already-recognized global wireless brand to Canada said Anthony Lacavera, Chairman of Globalive Holdings. WIND is an established and growing brand with a successful history of over 10 years in two large European markets, and Canadians will benefit from the economies of scale of this relationship. By choosing the same brand name, we are able to not only leverage WINDs challenger status, but also its operational intelligence and experience.
WIND is currently being developed based on feedback from Wireless Soapbox, which has shown that Canadians are frustrated with their current carriers. WIND is harnessing this power of conversation by meaningfully engaging customers in the co-creation of a better mobile experience. This direct challenge to conventional mobile service models aligns the company to the challenger status of the WIND brand and recognizes and celebrates the power that customers have, representing the positive change in mobile.
This is an exciting day for wireless in Canada and a historic moment for our company, said Ken Campbell, CEO of Globalive Wireless. WIND is founded on the power of conversation and we believe that through a healthy dialogue with our customers, we can create a wireless service that will surpass our competitors current offerings. Its time to raise the bar for wireless service in this country and make Canadas wireless services comparable to the likes of Europe and the United States.
WIND is already growing fast. Starting today, WIND is actively looking to immediately fill 300 positions in customer service and up to 2000 more positions within the next 12 months.
