Tole’afoa Douglas Creevey is set to return to Samoa.

He is coming back as the interim Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of Bluesky.

This was confirmed in a statement issued by the company yesterday.

“Toleafoa Douglas Creevey is being proposed to the Board to step in as interim CEO of Bluesky as Amper SA finalizes the sale of the company to Amalgamated Telecom Holdings (A.T.H),” the statement reads.

“Amper and A.T.H have confirmed that a definitive Sale and Purchase Agreement has been signed for the sale of Bluesky Pacific Group companies, and Amper is in the process of obtaining necessary shareholder and regulatory approvals.”

Toleafoa has been a part of Bluesky since 2011.

He has held a number of key leadership roles within the company including, Chief Operations Officer, Country Manager – Samoa and is currently Bluesky’s Country Manager in New Zealand and a Director on the board of Bluesky Cook Islands.

Regarding the pending appointment, Toleafoa said: “My priority is to ensure the continuity of our operations and that we continue to uphold Bluesky’s vision and values. I, together with the leadership team remain focused on delivering the best quality of service and looking after our customers.”

The announcement about Toleafoa followed confirmation about the sacking of Chief Executive Officer, Aoe’e Adolfo Montenegro.

 “Bluesky’s Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) Aoe’e Adolfo Montenegro and Bluesky’s parent company Amper SA have decided to conclude their management agreement effective on Friday last week,” a statement from the company said.

“Mr. Jaime Espinosa the Chairman of Bluesky’s parent company Amper now assumes the role of Group C.E.O of Bluesky Pacific Group.”

The statement did not give the reasons behind the decision.

The news comes as Amper works to finalise the sale of its South Pacific business to a Fiji government-backed company, Amalgamated Telecom Holdings (A.T.H). 

“Bluesky expresses its sincerest gratitude to Montenegro for his contributions to the Bluesky Pacific Group, to its staff and to the Pacific communities that it serves,” the statement from Bluesky continues.

“Montenegro has been the C.E.O of Bluesky since 2008 and he has led the company’s significant regional expansion across the Pacific where it now operates in Samoa, American Samoa, the Cook Islands and New Zealand.”
