Mr Anthony A Manboadh
Anthony A Manboadh began his professional career in telecom technology in Boston, Massachusetts (1976) with ROLM Telecommunications/ IBM-ROLM Telecommunications. Beginning as a telecom specialist and computer technician, his progress led to area manager with SIEMENS Communication-USA in Boston, MA. Subsequently, his specialized skillsets facilitated an appointment with the Government of the United States of the Virgin Islands, based on the island of St. Thomas, USVI as the Territorial Director of Telecommunications serving the USVI, Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Nations seeking assistance from a government-to-government type relationship.
After his retirement from government service, Mr. Manboadh founded Virgin Islands Telesolutions Limited (VITL), St. Thomas, USVI and Telecom Management Consultants Limited (TMCL) with offices in Florida-USA. From its US Base of Operations in Florida, Mr. Manboadh continued to offer strategic services to governments, corporate entities both in the USA and Nations of the Caribbean and Latin America. This necessitated a direct presence in the Republics of the Dominican Republic, Trinidad & Tobago and Columbia SA.
Using his decades’ long corporate and government experience, he designed and developed a two-year, University-level, training program in telecommunications technology which was implemented by The University of the West Indies St. Augustine, where Mr. Manboadh was the senior lecturer. This initiative helped to develop a cadre of professionals in the industry, which at the time was in short supply within the Caribbean Region.
His professional training began in the early years of digital technology all the way to advanced telecommunications systems and current technologies with and received numerous certificates and diplomas from industry leaders throughout the USA. These qualifications were complimented with degrees in Business Management (ASc), Industrial Electronics and Electricity technology (ASc) and MSc. from University of Portsmouth-UK in Strategic Business in Information Technology.
Having a passionate interest in arts, culture, music and human resource development, Mr. Manboadh graciously accepted an executive-level position on the Board of Directors with the Kathak Kala Sangam – Institute of Performing Arts, under the professional guide and astute leadership of its founder and Artistic Director, Dr. Satnarine Balkaransingh.
