MTN Group has appointed Ali Monzer to lead South Sudan operations as CEO, effective 1 April 2024.

The company announced Monzer's new assignment today, saying he will succeed Gordian Kyomukama, who will retire from the group.

Monzer, an MTN Group insider, has held progressively senior positions, most recently as chief technology and information officer of MTN Uganda, and the company says he brings over 23 years of telecommunications industry experience to his new role.

In previous roles, MTN said: “He has demonstrated success in operational efficiency, cost optimisation, market growth and customer experience enhancement. He holds a master's degree in computer communication engineering and relevant industry certifications.”

Ralph Mupita, MTN Group President and CEO, said: "His wealth of experience and proven track record in technology and operations make him well-positioned to drive MTN South Sudan's continued growth and success.

“I wish to take this opportunity to thank Gordian Kyomukama for always displaying vigour, determination, and an exemplary work ethic in his role.”
