MANILA: Globe Telecom’s Ernest Cu is one of most powerful telecom executives in the world, according to an international magazine.

Cu has been the president and CEO of Globe Telecom since April 2009. Before this, he was the chief executive of SPI Global Technologies, the business process outsourcing arm of the PLDT Group, reported The Standard.

He graduated from De La Salle University with a BS degree in Industrial Management Engineering in 1982 and obtained a Master in Management (Finance) from Northwestern University – Kellogg School of Management in 1984, the report said.

Global Telecoms Business, an international magazine, reportedly included Cu the Global Telecoms Business Power 100 for 2016, a list of the most powerful telecommunication executives in the world.

Cu is the only Filipino executive to make it to the Power 100 and among the top 10 in Asia, said the news portal.

Similar to the new selection process it adopted last year, inclusion in this year’s list of Power 100 was divided into a number of different categories such as operators in various parts of the world, over-the-top and content providers, hardware companies, handsets and chips, the report said.

Cu – who has been passionately driving a sweeping transformation across the company, including modernizing its network and IT infrastructure, creating a collaborative and service-oriented culture and product innovations in its mobile business — was reportedly listed in the Top Ten Operators from Asia.

Cu is currently leading the company in elevating the state of internet in the Philippines by maximizing the newly assigned 700-Mhz spectrum to provide a faster mobile internet experience to customers and by investing heavily to improve the fixed-line internet to connect 2 million families nationwide by 2020, reported The Standard.

Aside from Cu, other telecom executives included in the Top Ten Operators from Asia are Mukesh Ambani, managing director of Reliance Jio; Alex Jinsung Choi, CTO of SK Telecom; Chua Sock Koong, CEO of Singtel; Li Ka-shing,  chairman of CK Hutchison; Sunil Bharti Mittal, chairman of Bharti Airtel; Andy Penn, CEO of Telstra; Masayoshi Son, CEO of SoftBank; Hiroo Unoura, CEO of NTT; and Shang Bing, chairman of China Mobile.
