Pereira commented on his nomination, “It is a great honor to be recognized as an international leader in the industry, but I don’t view it as an individual accolade. It is much more a reflection of the work of our IDT team of 1,200 employees around the globe. Through their contributions, IDT has become a leading global carrier, and I am confident we will continue to take the company to new heights in the years to come.”

Under Pereira’s leadership, IDT now terminates 30 billion minutes per year, and has formed and strengthened key relationships with all of the world’s major carriers. This past year he oversaw the expansion of IDT into the money remittance business as well as the launch of the Boss Revolution mobile app. The award winning app enables customers all around the world to connect across borders with one-touch dialing of their contacts, with no contracts and low rates.
