MTN Cameroon gets new board chair after 21 years
Ebenezer Essoka has been appointed chairman of MTN Cameroon's board of directors, following an election by the company's group directors at a meeting in Johannesburg last week.
Essoka succeeds Colin Mukete, who has held the role since 2002, when MTN Cameroon successfully acquired Camtel's mobile division.
Mcebisi Jonas, Chairman, MTN Group, stated: “Cameroon is one of MTN Group’s key markets on the continent whose digital progress we are committed to drive for many years to come. We look forward to continuing this work with Mr Essoka”.
Essoka has an MBA in Finance and a Diploma in International Business, and has participated in senior executive development programmes at the Institut Européen d'Administration des Affaires (INSEAD), London Business School, Templeton College, Oxford University, and Cambridge University.
