Rob Shuter will join MTN as group president and CEO “as soon as it is practically possible in 2017 but not later than 1 July 2017″.
MTN has selected a new chief executive to replace Sifisco Dabengwa, who resigned last year November after the Nigerian authorities imposed a massive fine on the telecommunications company.
The group said today that it had appointed Rob Shuter as its new chief executive.
However, Rob will join MTN next year on July 1.
“Rob, a South African national, is the current chief executive of the European cluster at Vodafone Group and has extensive experience in telecoms and banking having held senior management roles at Vodacom, Standard Bank and Nedbank prior to joining Vodafone,” MTN said in a statement.
Rob Shuter, a South African national, is the current CEO of the European cluster at Vodafone Group Plc, Johannesburg-based MTN said in a statement Monday. Following the resolution of its Nigerian dispute, MTN has completed a review of its governance and management structures, it said.
MTN Group Ltd was launched in 1994; it is Africa’s biggest mobile-phone company that is subscribed in 22 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
The MTN Group is listed on the JSE Securities Exchange in South Africa under the share code: “MTN.” As of 30 April 2016, MTN recorded 230.3 million subscribers across its operations in Afghanistan, Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Cyprus, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Iran, Liberia, Nigeria, Republic of Congo (Congo-Brazzaville), Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan, South Sudan, Swaziland, Syria, Uganda, Yemen and Zambia.
