The East Africa Com CXO of the Year Award is back for 2019 – and the public can now vote for Sudatel’s CEO, Eng. Tarig Hamza Zain Elabdein.
Voted for by the public and presented at the East Africa Com Awards 2019, this accolade is awarded to an East Africa-based telecoms & ICT leader who is at the forefront of navigating their organisation through the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, by prioritising innovation, embracing disruptive tech and elevating the region’s digital economy. The award recognises the outstanding achievements of East African CEOs, CTOs, CIOs, CDOs and others in driving development across telecommunications and technology in the journey towards a “Digital Africa.”

Sudatel has been involved in a number of innovative projects of late. For example, the company recently won an award from the Corporate Social Responsibility Regional Network, in collaboration with the International Academy for Corporate Social Responsibility. The award follows other recent news that, following a careful evaluation process from a large number of submissions received by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), Sudatel Academy (Sudacad) has been re-selected to be one of six ITU Centres of Excellence for ICT applications, as well as wireless and fixed broadband.

At February’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sudatel also brought along three promising Sudanese start-ups, in an effort to support and showcase Sudan’s start-up talent.

Voting for the East Africa Com CXO of the Year closes at 2pm East Africa time (12pm GMT) on Monday, May 14. Voting can be done here.
