JT has learned that Tom Noel, Managing Director of JT International, has been shortlisted in the 2018 Institute of Directors Jersey, Director of the Year Awards. Tom has been nominated in the Director of the Year – Innovation category.
Jersey born and educated, Tom has led JT International since 2016. The division (formerly called JT Wholesale) is charged with utilising capacity in JT’s world-class infrastructure by developing new global business streams. Promoting a culture of innovation among his team of 60 people, Tom has developed and successfully sold a number of market-leading products, built on JT’s 700+ roaming agreements with other mobile network operators.
JT Chief Executive Officer Graeme Millar said: “I’m delighted to see Tom shortlisted for these prestigious awards. Having been honoured to have received an IoD award in 2012, I’m aware that Jersey is fortunate to have so many capable leaders and it is important that we recognise and celebrate their contribution.
“Tom left Jersey to go to university in the UK and he later worked in Switzerland and Ireland before returning to Jersey, in the knowledge that his skills and experience would be valuable. JT is fortunate to be part of a growing digital sector in Jersey, and I hope Tom’s shortlisting inspires others to explore the many opportunities available locally in the technology and digital industries.
“Tom’s nomination also recognises the important contribution of JT International, which not only allows JT to invest global revenues back into the Channel Islands but also enables new technologies to be used locally, such as an innovative low-power radio network that we have recently built in partnership with Sony.”
The winners will be announced at the IoD Jersey Director of the Year Awards Gala Dinner on Friday 27 April at the Hotel de France. All Jersey winners will be put forward for the UK IoD Director of the Year Final Awards later this year.
