Kenya: Orange Appoints New Managers to Grow Revenue

TELKOM Kenya's Orange announced senior staff appointments yesterday to steer it on a growth path.

The consistently loss-making telco since its entry in 2008 said earnings for the first six months of the year grew by 7.7 per cent and attributed this to its low cost 'Tujuane tarifff' and 3G rollout in Nakuru and Eldoret. It however did not provide figures.

Mercy Nduku takes over as the company's chief human resources officer, deputy chief finance officer Francois Bresson has been promoted to CFO while chief business transformation and SME officer Mireille Helou now becomes chief business market officer in charge of sales and marketing.

Ann Nyaga takes charge of customer care with Serge Medic becoming chief of security.

The company is however still scouting for chief technical information officer and has appointed deputy chief information technology and networks officer Andrew Kemosi and head of operations and maintenance Ludovic Lançon will temporarily jointly hold that brief.
