MTN has announced in a SENS statement that Stephen van Coller has resigned with effect from 31 August 2018.
Van Coller resigned from his post of vice president of digital services, data analytics, and business development at MTN to take up a group CEO position at another JSE-listed company.
He joined MTN on 1 October 2016 and played a key role in the development of MTN’s new BRIGHT strategy and digital services infrastructure.
Under his leadership, MTN’s mobile financial services customer base more than doubled to 25 million.
“I would like to wish Stephen every success as he commences an exciting new chapter in his career,” said MTN CEO Rob Shuter.
MTN said that van Coller’s successor will be announced in due course.
