Wind Mobile Names Pietro Cordova CEO – Lacavera Remains Chairman

by Istvan Fekete on October 28, 2014

Wind Mobile is about to undergo further changes: The wireless startup announced yesterday that it is promoting Pietro Cordova to Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

Anthony Lacavera, who has been the heart of the company, will remain Wind Mobile’s Chairman and a shareholder, and will take an active role at board level, including working with the company on business planning and strategy. He will also continue to advocate for the carrier.

The announcement comes after Wind announced a major change in the carrier’s history just last month: Backed by investor partners, Anthony Lacavera’s Globalive took over the struggling wireless startup from the Russian VimpelCom. This move marks an important milestone in the carrier’s history and seems to be the start of a much-needed change.

“As an entrepreneur, my vision was to ignite change across the wireless landscape in Canada, bringing more competition, better prices and superior service to Canadians,” said Lacavera, “and that is exactly what we did. WIND Mobile is on a solid profitable growth track, and I am confident Pietro will bring the same strong leadership to the WIND CEO position that he has demonstrated successfully over the past two years as COO.”

“It has been a pleasure working with Tony for the last two years and I look forward to continue working with him in his new capacity at WIND,” said Cordova. “WIND 2.0 is on solid ground, and I look forward to providing my ongoing support and leadership to the organization as we enter a very exciting phase in the life of WIND.”

After years of struggling, Wind Mobile has managed to accumulate 750,000 subscribers and counting, and the carrier has ambitious plans for the future.
