Liquid Telecom has a new CEO for Zambia – who is also the company’s first female CEO in the southern African nation.

Susan M’kandawire Mulikita began her role on January 14. Born in Zambia, she has more than 20 years of experience in the ICT industry, working at the senior level for both public and private sector organisations.

As she told African media outlet IT News Africa: “This is an exciting time to be joining Liquid Telecom Zambia. The company offers a superior service at both carrier and retail level and is poised to compete successfully in the Zambian ICT and telecoms landscape. I look forward to working collaboratively with our partners, government and other stakeholders to deliver innovative and compelling ICT and telecoms services. I am also very pleased to join a brand that promotes equal opportunities and inclusive leadership at the highest levels of the organisation.”

Added Wellington Makamure, CEO of Liquid Telecom’s Southern Africa Region: “This senior appointment marks an exciting new step in Liquid Telecom’s strategy to build Africa’s digital future.  Susan’s exceptional talent and experience will bring greater synergy to the Southern Africa region, and enable more customers to capitalise on Liquid Telecom’s connectivity, hosting, co-location and digital solutions portfolio – driving innovation and growth across the region. Susan’s appointment is particularly significant as it demonstrates Liquid Telecom’s continued focus on diversity and inclusiveness, especially at a regional level.”
