Jermile Daniel, the managing director of The Cell, Digicel’s authorized dealer, has received one of the highest accolades at the 2013 Chamber of Commerce Business Awards held at Sandals Grande.
Mr. Daniel captured the Entrepreneur of the Year award for his accomplishments as a young business owner.
At a time when the telecommunications market was becoming much liberalized and open to choice, Mr. Daniel saw opportunity to offer St Lucians a variety of quality accessories for different handsets. Set on finding a great location to set up shop, ‘The Cell’ doors were opened on Broglie Street on December 2002.
In March of 2003 the following year, Digicel saw the promise of this young businessman and asked Mr. Daniel to join the Digicel family as the official retailer and dealer for the many products and services offered by Digicel. This young man had vision and Digicel saw this as a perfect marriage for the two companies to bring the very best in service, savings and products to customers and the wider St Lucian public.
To date, Mr. Daniel owns 10 outlets of ‘The Cell’ across the Caribbean, including locations in St Lucia, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, Guyana, St. Vincent and Barbados. A business savvy young man, Mr. Daniel has set the bar of par-excellence very high and has proven that with vision, hardwork, dedication and sacrifice one can realize their dreams.
“It was an honour to receive such a prestigious award recognizing my hard work, dedication and achievements over the last decade. I know that it will inspire many young entrepreneurs to follow suit and seek excellence of the highest level!” said Mr. Daniel after receiving his award.
Marketing Manager for Digicel, Kerchelle Jn Charles said: “Digicel takes this opportunity to congratulate Jermile on this wonderful award. It is an achievement he has truly earned and deserves for his success lies greatly in the many satisfied customers that keep coming back to his establishment.”
Keep up the good work Jermile and The Cell for bringing smiles to the many faces of Digicel customers everywhere.
