Uganda’s Ubuntu Towers rebrands to TowerCo of Africa
Ubuntu Towers Uganda has rebranded to TowerCo of Africa Uganda, which is 90% owned by TowerCo of Africa (TOA), a subsidiary of AXIAN Telecom.
TowerCo of Africa offers telecom infrastructure-sharing services across the continent and the Indian Ocean.
The company announced the new-look on Friday, saying under a new identity, the company forges ahead with its journey towards redefining connectivity in Uganda.
In the new set up, TowerCo of Africa Uganda will continue to be run by its management team, including the eoffrey Donnels Oketayot (CEO), George Ssamula (CLO), and Ronald Onzia (COO), Mark Otai (CFO) and Harold Luzinda (CCO).
Collectively the team has over 25 years of experience in different fields, including engineering, business, operations management, law and will now be expected to steer the telecom infrastructure company to new heights.
Oketayot says the rebranding marks an important milestone in the company’s evolution, and a step towards its ambition to be a leading green passive infrastructure solutions provider in Uganda.
He added: "We are immensely grateful for the support of our employees, customers, business partners, industry bodies and government in helping to shape the socio-economic impact of TowerCo of Africa Uganda."
Stephane Beuvelet, CEO of TowerCo of Africa, commented: "TowerCo of Africa's infrastructure investments are contributing to various sectors, such as education, e-health, e-farming, logistics, and transport – among others. We are delighted to collaborate with compelling partners to deliver enhanced services as we work towards a better-connected, sustainable Uganda. We feel privileged to operate in a market where the regulation is progressive, and its people, ambitious and innovative."
