These appointments make further inroads into MTN GlobalConnect’s transformation journey which saw it recently welcoming Sylvia Anampiu as Managing Director for its Kenya operations and Lillian Mutwalo as Managing Director of its Zambia Operations.
As MTN GlobalConnect looks to increase fixed connectivity, and international mobile services through wholesale opportunities, Juliet and Josephine’s addition to the company’s strong female leadership bench will ensure that through its #GrowAfrica strategy, MTN GlobalConnect is well positioned to meet the anticipated exponential growth in data traffic in Africa thereby accelerating the continent’s digital economy.
