The news broke just days ago during his annual leadership meeting where MCI’s top 20 executives were planning 2019. Emotionally moved by the news, Marlowe was clear on his message to the executive team: “Let’s get their jobs back by January 2, 2019”. MCI had been working hard to acquire ServiCom while the company was still operating and believed strongly that the Sydney operation was a great fit for MCI’s business. “Expanding into a new country in less than 30 days is a big undertaking, but we have a great team and technology in place to get it done. That coupled with the talent, quality, tenure and commitment of the team on the ground, and we have the ingredients for a high degree of short- and long-term success”, Marlowe said.
