Schreiber to Step Down as B.T.L. C.E.O. after 2 Years in Office

Rochus Schreiber

As for his unforeseen notice of departure, Schreiber was also careful in his response, thanking B.T.L.’s board of directors for the chance to turn the company around and steer it in a new direction. His contract of a cool half a million Belize dollars with salaries and perks was just two and a half years running.   Schreiber says that the company at heart is truly Belizean and that his exit gives rise for a Belizean to take control.  Notwithstanding his abrupt resignation, Schreiber says he will be fully involved in the selection of his successor who is yet to be named.

“Your notice of resignation coincidentally comes at a time where the company is under the microscope.  Are you at liberty to share either your reasons for departure or what brought you to this point where you’ve tendered your resignation?”


Rochus Schreiber, C.E.O., B.T.L.

“I’m extremely grateful to the board of directors for the opportunity to serve as the first foreign C.E.O. of B.T.L. and for being given the opportunity to lead the company through a transformation into a digital era.  We have made significant strides on this journey.  We have made significant strides on this journey, we went from what would have been seen as a company that is developing but it was often called a dinosaur.  You don’t hear that in the public anymore, we have transformed our brand, we have transformed the country with the rollout of fiber to the home network which is now bringing capabilities, bringing internet to over eighty percent of the population of the country.  We have dramatically reduced the cost of internet access. So my job was very clear and very focused to help the company and drive the company through transformation, but it is a Belizean company and I firmly believe that it should be led by Belizeans.  I look forward to transitioning and helping the company in the selection of the next C.E.O. who will then continue the great work.”
