Professional Background/Education eg. BSS/OSS
Mature, seasoned and result-oriented telecom business executive with more than 30 years of successful and global experience in telecommunication and management across 15 different Countries. As you will see, my credentials include progressive responsibility with documented success at various organisational levels.
In my most recent role as Deputy Chief Technology Officer of Afghan Wireless, I managed the deployment and maintenance of a mobile network based mainly on Huawei network elements, supporting 2G, 3G (UMTS) and 4G (LTE) technologies, the only major NE that is not Huawei is the prepaid Billing platform provided by the RedKnee (formerly NSN’s BSS business unit). I also managed the deployment of a metro Wi-Fi system in Kabul using Altai access technology, and Alepo to integrate with the existing Billing platform. Prior to the Deputy CTO role, I was also Operations Director, and during my 14 years in Afghanistan I successfully transitioned the network through 4 generations of mobile technologies.
Apart from having worked in all major cities of Afghanistan deploying network infrastructure for Afghan Wireless, I have also worked in over a dozen countries worldwide performing software development, integration and test activities with Ericsson and their clients.
I am known as a versatile contributor with experience in all core Telecommunications and Management functions, top-flight consensus-building and problem-solving skills, and the ability to make difficult decisions.
I have a M.Sc. in Project Management (with merit) from University of Salford in Manchester, UK (awarded in collaboration with Robert Kennedy College, Zurich in 2015). and my 1'st degree was in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University in Ife, Nigeria, awarded in 1979, 2'nd class upper division
