The Chief Executive Officer of MTN Ghana, Selorm Adadevoh, has been appointed the Chief Commercial Officer of MTN Group.

He will succeed Jens Schulte-Bockum, who will conclude his term as Group Chief Operating Officer in March 2024.

Mr. Adadevoh took on the role of CEO at MTN Ghana in 2018, bringing with him prior experience from positions at Digicel and Millicom.

The statement from the mobile network operator outlined that Mr. Adadevoh will join the MTN Group Executive Committee after Jens Schulte-Bockum concludes his executive role in March 2024.

“We congratulate Selorm on his new appointment and thank him for successfully leading the company and steering it through challenging times, and for his hard work and commitment to MTN Ghana over the past five and a half years. We have no doubt that he will excel in his new role,” said MTN Ghana Board Chairman, Dr. Ishmael Yamson.

In a strategic move for orderly leadership succession, MTN Group appoints Selorm Adadevoh, the current CEO of MTN Ghana, as the new Chief Commercial Officer. This appointment comes as Jens Schulte-Bockum concludes his term as Group Chief Operating Officer in March 2024.

Selorm will become a member of the MTN Group Executive Committee. Jens will step down from his executive role on 31 March 2024 but will remain a non-executive director on the boards of major subsidiaries – MTN South Africa, MTN Nigeria and Bayobab.

“We congratulate Selorm on his new appointment and thank him for successfully leading the company and steering it through challenging times, and for his hard work and commitment to MTN Ghana over the past five and a half years. We have no doubt that he will excel in his new role,” said MTN Ghana Board Chairman, Dr. Ishmael Yamson.

Selorm Adadevoh, who assumed the role of MTN Ghana CEO in 2018, brings a wealth of experience to his new position as Chief Commercial Officer of MTN Group. His background includes significant roles at Digicel in the Caribbean, Millicom in Africa, and diverse experiences in the USA, UK, and Latin America throughout his career.

Since joining MTN, Selorm has led the transformation of the MTN Ghana business and has been instrumental in driving the new Ambition 2025 strategy for MTN Ghana towards becoming a platform player. His influence and impact on major industry initiatives have been significant.

The Board of Directors of MTN Ghana and its subsidiaries would like to take this opportunity to express their gratitude to Selorm for his immense contribution to the company during his tenure as CEO, and we wish him every success in his new role as MTN Group Chief Commercial Officer.
