Vodafone Ghana has named Yolanda Zoleka Cuba as its new Chief Executive Officer with effect from 1st May, 2016.

 This follows the imminent departure of Haris Broumidis, who is taking up a new appointment as Chief Executive and Chairman of Vodafone Greece.

Yolanda was the Strategy and New Business Director for Vodacom Group, having joined the company in November 2014. She also previously worked as Executive Director, Strategy & Business Support at South African Breweries Limited (‘SAB’) and as Group CEO of the publicly listed Mvelaphanda Group.

Her appointment is coming at a crucial time in the telecommunications industry in Ghana; with Mobile money and Machine-2-Machine set to dictate the pace of growth in the years ahead.
