Tunisie Telecom gets new head

Tunisia’s main telecommunications company Tunise Telecom announced on Tuesday that Raouf Chekir will take over the top job from Montassar Ouaili. Chekir had previously served among others as CEO of the National Broadcasting Corporation.

It comes as the country continues to attempt to put itself back together after protests in January forced out the government and signaled a new era in Tunisia politics. The telecom sector has not avoided some chaos.
“Chekir is a good choice because he knows what the people want and how to deal with them on a daily basis,” said Tunsie Telecom spokesperson Marie Hamadani.

She added that “with all the turmoil in recent weeks, it is going to be nice to get back on the ground and start making things better for the people.”
Tunisie Telecom had faced an uphill battle in the past few weeks as violence continues to embattle the country and the network has seen trouble in pulling itself back together, but Hamadani is confident that the new leadership will help spur on development and success.

“It is going to be a positive moving forward to have Chekir as our leader because he knows what needs to be done,” she added.
