Kevin MutumaCarrier Business Director at China Mobile International Kenya
Kevin is an experienced business development professional having worked in the technology industry for almost 15 years. His specific interests lie in bridging the connectivity divide that exists in Pan-Africa and this has shaped his journey over the years working with different organizations that play critical roles in the value chain.
An engineer by profession, Kevin started out his career at the heart of it - building and managing core networks and transitioning millions of customers from fixed voice only connections to intelligent mobile networks. Over the years, he transitioned into monetizing the value created by these networks to deliver one-stop shop (OSS) solutions for corporate customers.
In the more recent years working with large carrier operators across Africa, the need for a clear focused agenda to address the huge challenges that lie in Africa have compelled him to be at the forefront of the transformation.
He has managed several large initiatives including satellite solutions in remote cities, large fiber metro deployments, cross-border backbone connectivity and submarine cable projects in sub- Saharan Africa between operators, carriers and governments.
