The Managing Director of Airtel Ghana, Lucy Quist has dropped a hint of quiting the fourth largest telco in Ghana as the company gears up to commence merging with third place Tigo.
She dropped the hint on her Facebook Page on Monday, saying “After three and a half years of leading the amazing team at Airtel Ghana, the time is right for me to move on to the next chapter.”t
She further stated that it has been a truly remarkable journey and “I thank each and everyone of you for your support, encouragement and business partnership over the course of my stewardship.”
Lucy Quist she was proud of her achievements at Airtel, particularly the many initiatives she led over the last few years to empower young people and every young person who works with her for that matter.
“Notably the Evolve with STEM and the Bold New Normal initiatives,” she said.
“I look forward to empowering more young people even as I continue my professional leadership journey. Together we will create the Bold New Normal of prosperity for our country and continent,” she added.
Lucy Quist, did not say why she was leaving, but it would be recalled that in March when the Airtel-Tigo merger was first announced, Tigo Ghana General Manager Roshi Motman was tipped as head of the merged company over Lucy Quist.
This was arguably because Tigo is bigger than Airtel in terms of subscribers, and at the time the merger was announced, Tigo was gaining subscribers while Airtel was losing, and it has been so every month till date.
Lucy Quist was the first Ghanaian female to head a multinational telecommunications company in Ghana, and while at it, she won CIMG Marketing woman of the year 2015.
It’s however believed that it has something to do with the merger with Tigo.
