Telkom Kenya says it will restructure its service delivery units to be headed by a managing director and chief officer to strategic direction.
According to the telco, this will help it to grow its market share currently dominated by Safaricom.
Telkom Kenya, is 60 percent owned by UK private equity firm Helios Investment Partners, while the balance 40 percent is owned by the Kenyan government.
“Given our vast infrastructure asset base, terrestrial fiber, and our 4G network, we are confident in this new direction, one that has also been strengthened by the accelerated digital transformation, making both businesses and individuals acutely aware of the need to change how we do things,” said Telkom in a statement.
Following the changes, Mr Steve Okeyo was named Managing Director for Telkom Consumer, Kris Senanu as the Managing Director Telkom Digital and Kebaso G. Mogogi as Chief Wholesale and Cloud Officer.
“I am excited to share our new strategic focus areas, that will address this current transformational dynamic as well as Telkom’s long-term objectives, as we work towards becoming a thriving integrated Telco provider, and the technology company of the future,” said Mr. Mugo Kibati, CEO Telkom Kenya.
