This was revealed through a press statement from Airtel Africa which says part of Gutjahr’s mandate is to grow the company’s 3G footprint in the East African country.
Gutjahr was previously CEO for three Tigo operations in Paraguay, Rwanda and Chad. The Tigo brand forms part of the Millicom Group.
Former MTN executive and now CEO for Airtel Africa, Christian de Faria, said in a statement:
“In Mr. Gutjahr, I am confident that Airtel will continue to enhance the benefits of telecommunications services for the communities in Uganda. I want to warmly welcome him to the Airtel family.”
