MTN South Africa announced today it has appointed insider Megan Nicholas as MD for Supersonic, the network provider’s fibre and broadband internet service provider.
Her appointment is effective 01 January 2022.
Currently, General Manager for Residential at MTN South Africa, Nicholas’s internal appointment is a strategic move from MTN to ensure continuous customer growth in the residential market, of which MTN aspires to own 30% market share across all technologies by 2025.
“Residential broadband delivery is a critical strategic focus, as we work to bring our superior network and service into more of our customer’s homes. This battle for the home market needs a leader of Megan’s calibre, expertise and experience,” MTN SA’s Chief Executive Officer, Charles Molapisi, says.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to grow our Supersonic business in this ever-changing environment, we consider this appointment as one of the strategic levers. Megan’s extensive experience across the broadband sector is recognised as a vital driver to achieve our growth ambitions in this highly innovative space.”
With a career spanning a number of blue-chip organisations, across multiple mobile networks, Nicholas has the relevant industry, commercial and operational expertise to further strengthen the Supersonic business.
Coupled with a proven track record in the design and executing of business strategies, she seeks to challenge the market ‘status quo’, and thereby increase the overall profitability of our complete Residential portfolio.
“I am very excited to be leading the execution against our 2025 strategy to ‘own the home’, and I believe that Supersonic is an important contributor to achieving that ambition,” said Nicholas.
“With Megan’s strong determination and dedication, and her ability to build high-performance teams, we are confident that her leadership will not only boost the performance of our Supersonic business, but also move us even closer to realising our ambition and vision.” concludes Molapisi.
