Josephine Sarouk will assume the role of MD for MTN GlobalConnect Nigeria, effective 1 March 2023, and Juliet Nsubuga will take the lead as MD of MTN GlobalConnect Uganda, effective 1 April 2023.
According to a statement released by MTN Group, Sarouk has more than 14 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, specialising in ICT, digital, wholesale, enterprise sales, and marketing.

The company believes that these latest executive appointments add to its strong female leadership bench and will ensure that, through its #GrowAfrica strategy, it is well-positioned to meet the anticipated exponential growth in data traffic in Africa, "thereby accelerating the continent’s digital economy."
Frédéric Schepens, MTN GlobalConnect CEO, says, “I look forward to working closely with our newly appointed business leaders as we continue to build our business in Africa. We welcome Juliet and Josephine into the MTN GlobalConnect family and look forward to learning from their knowledge and rich experience in the telecommunications sector."
