Qualfon, a leading business process outsourcing (BPO) and call center service provider, announced today that a team of employees from its Guyana office took first place in a fundraiser cricket tournament that benefited the local Malteenoes Sport Club.
In a highly entertaining chase, Qualfon Guyana defeated the Upper Level Barbers, taking the trophy. Kellon Carmichael and Marcus Watkins were among the star Qualfon players, who led the team to victory. The event was sponsored by Noble House Seafoods, Star Party Rentals, and Friends of Malteenoes.
Qualfon Guyana was up against some of the best talent in the region with team Upper Level Barbers, which starred a former national cricket player, Lennox Cush. Nonetheless, Qualfon openers, Carmichael and Watkins took the team to the winning target of 58 without loss from four overs and in reply to the 57-3 posted by Upper Level. The game was reduced to 10 overs per side due to fading light. Seon Daniels was the best bowler for Qualfon Guyana, ending with figures of 2-11. Qualfon Guyana, which included former West Indies fast bowler Colin Stuart, won the Noble Seafood’s Trophy for their effort.
“The young men of Qualfon Guyana have made us all very proud today,” said Neion Barry, Recreational Activities Coordinator at Qualfon. “Cricket is the national sport here in Guyana, so it’s a joy for our employees to come out and enjoy themselves in this fun and friendly competition.”
In addition to raising money for the local sports club, the tournament was aimed at fostering camaraderie and encouraging physical activity among Qualfon’s employees. “Our company mission is to ‘be the best BPO and make people’s lives better.’ So, Qualfon makes it a top priority to offer opportunities like these to our employees,” said Barry.
