Brian Armstrong, Telkom’s Chief Commercial Officer, is retiring at the end of the company’s financial year, CEO Sipho Maseko has told staff.
In an email to employees, Maseko said Armstrong had “successfully led Telkom Business and then Telkom Retail, including Consumer, Cybernest and Mobile”.
“He also led the successful acquisition of BCX and most recently has been instrumental in the creation of our new digital business space,” said Maseko.
Armstrong joined Telkom’s executive committee in 2010, following a move from BT.
“I am looking forward to launching the next phase of my career, in research, consulting, and perhaps a few board roles. I am passionate about the potential within many digital start-ups and look forward to getting more involved in this arena,” said Armstrong.
“I hope to be able to give back to the industry some of the learnings I have been privileged to gather over the last 30 years.”
