eLandia Restructures South Pacific Operations

eLandia International has restructured its South Pacific operations to strengthen the company's position and better align the organization with the company's strategy by consolidating its presence in American Samoa, Fiji and Papua New Guinea.

eLandia's South Pacific companies, which include Datec, Bluesky Communications and American Samoa Hawaii Cable (ASHC), primarily provide technology integration, education, infrastructure solutions and wireless telecommunications services.

As a result of the restructuring, American Samoa will serve as the regional headquarters while Fiji will support the neighboring Pacific Island Nations, where key customer agreements can be managed on a regional basis, eliminating duplication of resources and creating a more cost effective delivery of solutions. eLandia also announced the sale of its Queensland operation, a company that provides billing software for utilities in Australia, and that it will maintain back-office operations in Auckland, New Zealand.

The reorganization of the South Pacific operations is expected to save the company more than US$ 1 million in operating costs on an annual basis. In addition to reducing costs, it will allow eLandia to focus on opportunities that are aligned with the company's corporate strategy of enabling technology in the regions where it operates.

eLandia has also named Adolfo Montenegro, a seasoned executive in the Information Communications and Technology industry, as Vice President of eLandia South Pacific, responsible for the growth of eLandia group companies in the South Pacific region. Mr. Montenegro will also continue as President of Bluesky Communications in American Samoa, a position he has held since May of 2008.
