KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica-based company itelbpo was named by an international panel of senior business experts, winner of The Caribbean Council’s inaugural “Excellence in International Business”.
The award, recognising Caribbean entrepreneurial talent, was presented by president of the Jamaica Promotions Agency (Jampro), Diane Edwards, on November 25 during the Caribbean Council’s 2020 virtual Conference.

“I am receiving the award on behalf of them, which is truly a proud moment for myself and for the rest of the company”.
