West African telecom operator, AirtelTigo announced on Monday, 9 September 2019 that CEO, Mitwa Kaemba Ng’ambi, will be leaving the company on Wednesday, 13 September 2019 for personal reasons. In the interim, Murthy Changanti, AirtelTigo COO, will take on the role of CEO.
In a statement, AirtelTigo thanked Ng’ambi for her leadership and wished her well for the future. She took up the CEO role in 2018 after Roshi Motman resigned to pursue new opportunities. During her tenure, the company saw the successful reestablishment of visions and values.
According to the company, Ng’ambi has been instrumental in stabilising the business and positioning it well for further growth through a number of projects and partnerships. On such project saw the company partner with Huawei Technologies on a $30-million network modernisation plan aimed at providing a faster internet experience to customers.
“Over the past year, I look back with so much pride and gratitude and I look ahead into the future of AirtelTigo with so much excitement,” says Ng’ambi.
She continued by thanking her staff for the achievements they made together – “We defied the odds and brought the merger to a close in record time. We have re-launched our brand, come up with fantastic products and are seeing sustained business growth. This had nothing to do with me, and everything to do with you – I am just so super proud”.
