Eaton Towers, the African tower ownership and management company, has appointed Peter Lewis as its chief financial officer.

Lewis has joined Eaton Towers from Millicom, the telecoms operator that focuses on growth markets in Africa and Central and South America. His role at Millicom was treasurer and head of corporate finance. Lewis was also responsible for raising debt to fund Millicom’s cellular operations in Africa and was one of the pioneers in the development of the tower business in Africa.

Alan Harper, CEO, Eaton Towers, said: “Peter has an impressive international track record in the telecoms sector and brings expertise of raising debt funding and the towers business in Africa. Following the recent investment in our business, we are poised to expand our operations across sub-Saharan Africa and have several major deals in the pipeline. Tower sharing brings benefits to all parties, allowing operators to broaden coverage and quality of service whilst cutting capital investment and operating costs. The appointment of Peter provides further momentum to our strategy to become the leading tower company in Africa.”

Eaton Towers operates towers in Ghana and South Africa. It has also recently set up offices in Kenya and Uganda.
