Vodacom financial services executive, Mark Taylor is leaving the mobile operator, and will be joining Nashua Mobile as managing director.
Taylor’s departure at Vodacom follows the news that Vodacom CEO Pieter Uys will step down as CEO to make way for new CEO Shameel Joosub.
In June Vodacom announced that that Sipho Maseko, managing director of Vodacom SA and chief operating officer of the Vodacom Group, had also decided to leave the company.
Nashua Mobile said that Taylor will head up Nashua Mobile as the managing director from 1 October 2012.
Taylor first joined Nashua Mobile in 2000 as a director responsible for IT and operations after being responsible for the merger between Plessey and Nedtel. In 2001, Nedtel and Nashua merged to form Nashua Mobile, and in 2003 Taylor took the reins at Nashua Mobile.
Taylor left Nashua Mobile (where he was the CEO) in late 2008 to join Vodacom.
