Digicel is in mourning today following the sudden death of its Group CEO, Alex Matuschka von Greiffenclau. 

Alex died suddenly yesterday whilst on holiday with his family in his native Germany.  

Group Chairman Denis O'Brien said:

"No words can adequately express our sadness at Alex’s passing or our gratitude for having worked with him. Digicel has lost a committed, hard-working and exceptional Chief Executive.

Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know him on a personal level have lost a dear friend."

Mr Matuschka joined Digicel early this year, taking over from former Digicel chief executive, Colm Delves.

He is survived by his wife Julia and three children.

The entire Digicel family extends its sincerest sympathies to the Matuschka family.
