I am currently working as the Chief Commercial Officer for Econet Wireless. Econet Wireless Zimbabwe Ltd is a leading, fully integrated mobile telecom company of Africa offering Telecom, Mobile Money, IOT, Media and Broadcasting services. The Commercial Team was able to turn-around Econet within six months after my joining the division. The company’s revenue market share has started reporting significant growth for the first time in 5 years. Econet has gained a revenue market share of over 14% within a 2 year period, in a highly competitive market. This was possible by adopting a new business model, launching innovative products, driving digital transformation, repositioning the brand to suit a younger audience, streamlining distribution through regionalization and using Big Data and developing products for micro segments. In addition to this I have worked in West Africa while based in Lagos, Nigeria, for Globacom Mobile in a Leadership role within the Marketing Division for Nigeria, Benin & Ghana. I was responsible for delivering annual revenue of more than USD 1,10 billion and customer base of 20 million.
I have over twenty-two years of Management Experience in Asia, West Africa and Southern Africa with 18 years of dedicated focus in the Telecom and Digital Industry with hands on experience in innovative Product Development, Business Planning, Segment Management, Digital Marketing, Brand Management, Customer Care and developing Sales & Distribution processes.
