My Interview with the CEO of Globalive Anthony Lacavera

September 22nd, 2009

I recently had a chance to meet with Anthony Lacavera. Anthony is the CEO of Globalive, the company behind Wind Mobile, Canada’s newest mobile phone service provider. Check my interview out.

While Anthony wouldn’t really discuss their upcoming phone lineup I have some observations. First off Anthony is completely dependent on his Blackberry. He’s one of those guys who’s ‘berry spends more time in his hand than in his pocket (he’s a spiffy dresser so I don’t think he has a holster). I would be somewhat surprised if Wind didn’t launch with a Blackberry – probably the 9700 in their lineup. Secondly call it a hunch but I have a feeling the Galaxy – AKA the i7500, Samsung’s first Android with with an incredible AMOLED screen will also be there at launch.

    Lacavera’s name is synonymous to customer focused approach unlike the big telcos in Toronto. I have years in the telco world in Toronto from Toronto Hydro Telecom and a stint at Bell wireless. Everybody knows Anthony’s reputation in the telco world in Toronto. We need a new wireless company, a fresh voice with fresh ideas and better service and price.

    If they can offer a 416 number then I will be the first customer for WIND MOBILE.
