New positions for Airtel local executives

18 February 2014, 10:34Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - Local executives have assumed new roles outside the country as Bharti Airtel announced two key strategic appointments within its African operations.

According to the telecommunications company, Vera Ogwa Onoja, former Zonal Business Manager for North Central, Nigeria, is now Regional Operations Director for Tanzania, while Oladapo Sorinolu, former Head of Corporate and Enterprise in Nigeria is now Enterprise Director for Uganda.

Bharti Airtel said the appointment took effect from the last quarter of 2013.

Commenting on the appointment, Segun Ogunsanya, Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Nigeria, said that Bharti-Airtel was a global business with a human resource structure designed to draw talent from across the various geographies in the pursuit of its objectives.

He restated the company’s commitment to developing indigenous talents and giving them leadership opportunities anywhere their skills and expertise are required.

He noted that global businesses take expatriation seriously in their quest to develop a talent pool of employees with multi-geographical professional experience to take their businesses to the next level.

Ogwa and Sorinolu joined Airtel in 2003 and 2012 respectively.

Ogwa had worked in various capacities in the Sales and Distribution Group and later rose to the position of Zonal Business Manager North Central. Sorinolu has helped to position Airtel as a major player in the Nigerian Enterprise market.
