South Africa’s MTN Group has appointed new CEOs for its operations in Zambia and Cameroon.

Abdul Ismail and Karl Toriola will take over as CEO of MTN Zambia and MTN Cameroon respectively, from November 1.

Ismail, currently the chief information officer of MTN Nigeria, will take over from Farhad Khan, who has been CEO at MTN Zambia since September 2009.

During his tenure, Khan has increased MTN Zambia’s market share from 28% to 36%. Prior to joining MTN Zambia, Khan headed the sales department at MTN Irancell.

Karl Toriola, currently the chief technology officer of MTN Nigeria, will replace outgoing MTN Cameroon's CEO Philippe Vandebrouck, who is retiring. Toriola joined the MTN Group in 2006 as an operations consultant, and subsequently moved to MTN Nigeria where he was responsible for the operation’s technology strategy.

His previous experience includes roles with VMobile Nigeria - where he was chief operations and regional officer at Econet and Ericsson.
