Interview: Huge Group’s James Herbst and Duarte da Silva

James Herbst and Duarte da Silva

In this episode of TechCentral, Duncan McLeod chats to James Herbst and Duarte da Silva about the past, present and future of listed telecommunications company Huge Group.

The CEO and chairman respectively, Herbst and Da Silva chat about the crisis that hit Huge Group when the bottom fell out of the least-cost routing market and how the business was able to turn itself around to the extent where it has now attracted several heavy hitters to its board, including Da Silva, former MTN South Africa CEO Zunaid Bulbulia and former Telkom chief commercial officer Brian Armstrong.

The pair also chat about how they believe the foundation has now been created for strong growth in the coming years at Huge Group and provide insight into how they believe the South African telecoms landscape is changing.

It’s a fascinating interview. Don’t miss it!
