Executive brought huge business opportunities

By Eric Carson

The benefits that an Executive brought were huge.

Trade missions were unheard of, whether by countries looking to invest or our own delegates travelling the world, yet the last 20 years have enjoyed a marked increase in inward investment. We became much more attractive to overseas investors and started attracting business interests from across the globe.

Of course, this influx of new business required telecommunications networks and capabilities, providing an opportunity for Rainbow. As a locally operated and independent company, we could also benefit from the influence MLAs had when it came to important issues here, whether involving tax, minimum wage or access to new technologies.

Eric Carson is co-founder and chairman of Rainbow Communications, which was founded in 1998
