A fast-growing operator in multiple African markets is making advancements in their lifecycle and are creating a new Group CEO role within the business, to lead the business strategy from the top and drive the business to the forefront of the market with a pan-African strategy.
The CEO will deliver world-class day leadership and management of Africa’s most exciting gaming and value added service multinational, leading a strong team of operators at local level and shared services in Tanzania; Uganda; Ghana; Senegal; DRC and others (with more markets on the roadmap).
The CEO will be responsible for an ambitious but achievable growth trajectory and lead the company through subsequent financing rounds to fund expansion into new markets and diversification of products and services, delivered through new digital channels as well as the existing network of mobile network operators. The ultimate objective is to seek an exit point, developing the business into an attractive acquisition prospect in this period.
The search requires a strong leader, dynamic thinker, problem solver, highly structured and organised but with visionary mindset. It will be someone who can inspire, motivate, lead and develop the business and team, across 10+ markets. It is someone who has proven success in leading businesses at C-level, who can bring gravitas and expertise to this organisation.
It is important to understand business, metrics, KPIs + operational & organisational challenges within the African region. It’s a unique territory with many obstacles & pitfalls, so it is imperative to be aware of how to overcome and avoid such issues.
Location is flexible, depending on the candidate. Extensive travel throughout Africa from market-to-market will be required. Your ideal base will be somewhere in Europe with frequent business travel to the region.
