In addition, Frédéric Schepens, CEO of MTN GlobalConnect was presented with the Telecom Review Leader Merit Award in the category of Industry CEO of the Year for Wholesale Operators. This award is a testament to his agile and people-centric leadership style. Fred is a seasoned telecom wholesale professional and has been running the company for over 3 years since its’ inception taking it from zero to one. MTN GlobalConnect is the only operating company out of 21 MTN companies that isn’t country specific.

In a year characterised by the unknown and various challenges for companies and individuals alike, the key takeaway is the importance of resilience on every level to continue to grow.
Frédéric commented that “The MTN GlobalConnect team and I are humbled by winning these two awards. In a year that has been challenging for everyone, the recognition fuels our mission even more to grow Africa, by doing the work we do in infrastructure, and that lends itself to realising the MTN mission where everyone benefits from a modern connected life.”
