Vodafone CEO commends local franchise partners’ response to the pandemic

Vodafone Ireland CEO Anne O’Leary has commended the response of the company’s franchise partners in overcoming and adapting to the challenges presented by the pandemic.

The Vodafone CEO highlighted how local Vodafone’s franchise partners including Jessica and Billy O’Connor of Kerry Phone Centres adapted during the height of the lockdown to maintain services for their customers.

“On a recent visit, I saw first-hand the important role they, as a key Vodafone partner, played in keeping the community connected during lockdown. Operating in Cork and Kerry for over 20 years, Jessica and Billy O’Connor operate eight stores and support over 200 business customers in the region.”
