Both appointments, in the opinion of Airtel, are expected to usher in a new age of innovation and expansion for the company.

Speaking about the recent appointments, Carl Cruz, Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Nigeria, said that the company is happy to elevate an outstanding female leader within its ranks to the position. Kemi Ariyo, who has significant experience, will be instrumental in leading Airtel Nigeria’s efforts to undergo digital transformation.

Their in-depth expertise and experience will be invaluable in driving our technological transformation and delivering exceptional experiences to our over 60 million users. We are confident that, with their experience and expertise, Airtel will continue to innovate and stay ahead while developing cutting-edge solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” Cruz said.

Harmanpreet Singh Dhillon, the company revealed, brings an impressive background experience of over 23 years in the telecommunications industry and a passion for driving technological advancements.

Previously, he had served in various capacities across different organizations, including Vodafone, Nokia, Huawei, and was Chief Technology Officer at One Airtel in Karnataka, India, where he was responsible for leading the technology strategy, forecasting, expansion, operations, cost optimization, and capex planning for the networks team.

Kemi Ariyo also brings years of cross-industry and cross-continental career experience across the IT value-chain with a track record of providing technical solutions geared towards service efficiency, customer experience, and business profitability.
