ACCRA, (CAJ News) – MTN Group has appointed Ebenezer Asante as Vice President (VP) of the expanded Southern and East Africa and Ghana (SEAGHA) region.
Asante is currently the Chief Executive Officer of MTN Ghana, a position he has held since July 2015.

“I am very pleased for Ebenezer; he is a great talent and business leader.

“Ebenezer will bring great value to the Group leadership team, to the benefit of our people and customers across the MTN footprint,” Shuter added.
Asante joined MTN in 2008 as Sales and Distribution Executive at MTN Ghana.
