ZAMBIAs up­com­ing telco Voda­fone re­cently made strate­gic changes to its top man­age­ment struc­ture. Key of these changes were the ap­point­ment of a Chief Tech­ni­cal and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer (CTIO) Jussab Kara to drive the Voice over LTE path which Voda­fone has taken on to pen­e­trate the Zam­bian mar­ket ag­gres­sively. Juss­abs ap­point­ment took ef­fect on 01 April. Kara has over 19 years of ex­ten­sive telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ex­pe­ri­ence and has worked for ri­vals Air­tel and MTN in cus­tomer ser­vice, fi­nance, billing, mar­ket­ing and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy. Lars Stork, CEO of Voda­fone Zam­bia be­lieves that Jussab brings the ca­pa­bil­ity and ex­per­tise to con­tinue to build Voda­fone Zam­bia as a flag­ship dig­i­tal ser­vice provider with su­pe­rior net­work qual­ity and in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy. “We’ve got a very strong net­work roadmap, which in­cludes cov­er­age ex­pan­sion, Voice over LTE and I’m ex­cited about ev­ery­thing we’ll be de­liv­er­ing for cus­tomers,” Stork said. In its lat­est an­nounce­ment, Kara’s said his ap­point­ment will re­in­force its drive of 4G-Ad­vanced and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) lo­cally. “I’m de­lighted to be join­ing Voda­fone Zam­bia at this ex­cit­ing time, as we drive for­ward the likes of 4G-Ad­vanced and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) all of which will power the new dig­i­tal econ­omy.
