Robert Aouad

CEO at Isocel

Profile

Born in Ghana, Robert AOUAD studied in France and lived and worked in the United States for several years. A born entrepreneur, he moved to Benin since 1995, where he set up various distribution and sales companies for consumer products. 

In 2000, he created a company specializing in the marketing of mobile terminals, SIM and recharge cards. This was his first step in the world of telecommunications. From that date, he wanted to devote himself entirely to his new passion and as a self learner, he took several initiatives to deepen his knowledge in this field. 

He always had the vision to promote better access to the Internet, especially for young people and low-income groups. He is the main promoter of ISOCEL Telecom, which became the leading private Internet Service Provider in Benin. A success story that relates a unique experience in the subregion through the innovation it has brought to the digital economy of this country. During the 4th quarter of 2017, ISOCEL will begin deploying a Next Generation Access Network that will use FTTx technologies, fixed and nomadic LTE, Wi-Fi hotspots and KA Band satellite.
