MTN South Africa chief technical officer Lambo Kanagaratnam is moving to a new role at the operator. Effective immediately, he will head up its enterprise business division.
Airtel Africa chief technology officer Eben Albertyn has taken the reins from Kanagaratnam. Albertyn was formerly chief technology officer for MTN in Cameroon and Ghana.
Kanagaratnam takes over from Zunaid Bulbulia, formerly MTN South Africa’s chief financial officer, who had led the enterprise division since July 2012 in an acting capacity following the departure of MTN Business MD Angela Gahagan-Thomson. Bulbulia was named last month as MTN South Africa’s new CEO, taking the reins from Karel Pienaar, who has been named chief strategy officer at MTN Group.
