Two senior members of staff of Airtel Nigeria, Mr Bashir Ibrahim and Mr Oladapo Dosunmu, have been promoted by the company.
The duo, Mr Ibrahim and Mr Dosunmu, have been made the Regional Operations Directors for North Region and South Region respectively.
Both will ensure the growth of the telecommunications services provider in their respective regions and will also leverage on their distribution expertise to drive deeper penetration in their assigned regions.
Before now, Mr Ibrahim was the Zonal Business Manager (North Midland) where he was instrumental to managing Airtel’s presence in the war-torn regions of the North East.
He graduated from the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University in 1997 with a degree in Mechanical/Production Engineering and has close to two decade experience across multiple sectors and geographies.
On his part, Mr Dosunmu was the Head of Indirect Sales at Airtel Nigeria. He graduated from the Lagos State University and has managed the transition of Airtel’s Channel Partners based distribution model to a more robust model having multiple routes to market.
Before joining Airtel, Dosunmu was Head, Distribution, Glozone & Branding at Globacom Nigeria. He had also held different positions at Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottlers, heading different divisions including Commercial Process and Demand Planning, Commercial Projects and Regional Sales Manager.
Commenting on the promotion, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Nigeria, Mr Segun Ogunsanya, congratulated the duo and charged them to perform excellently in their new positions.
In a similar development, Airtel Nigeria has announced the reorganization of its commercial operations to accelerate growth, drive efficiency and reclaim market leadership in the highly competitive telecoms sector.
The firm said its former Regional Operations Director (South Region), Ms Veronica Onoja, will take on a new role as Vice President, Airtel Money Operations while Mr Wole Abu, former Regional Operations Director (North Region), will assume the position of Vice President, Indirect Sales.
He is tasked with managing Airtel’s strategic partners and also to take full ownership of Airtel’s KYC operations to ensure compliance with statutory regulations.
Furthermore, the erstwhile Regional Operations Director (West Region), Mr Olusina Adegoke, has been reassigned as Regional Operations Director (Lagos Region) while Mr Femi Oshinlaja, former Vice President, Airtel Money Operations, has been appointed Regional Operations Director (West Region).
Also, Mr Oladokun Oye, former Regional Operations Director (Lagos Region), has been drafted to the Headquarters to head Airtel’s Direct Sales Directorate and tasked with not only driving and improving customer experience and profitability of this business segment but also grow and develop new direct sales channels.
