Vodacom has lost one of its top executives. Bloomberg is reporting that Romeo Kumalo, the chief operating officer of the mobile operator’s international operators has resigned, apparently to join his family business.
Kumalo has been with Vodacom since 2004. He is a former MD of Vodacom Tanzania and was appointed to the board of Vodacom South Africa in April 2007 as executive director: commercial.
He was appointed to Vodacom’s group executive committee in November 2010 and appointed as operations chief for international business in mid-2012.
Before joining Vodacom, he was GM of SABC 1 and before that GM at radio station Metro FM. He is a graduate of the Advanced Management Programme at Harvard Business School.
According to Bloomberg, Kumalo will step down on 31 May. — © 2015 NewsCentral Media
