He has consequently resigned as the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications; a post he held for six years. Mr. Sakyi-Addo, who is the first CEO, is credited with building the Chamber from nothing to its current significant position in the telecommunications industry. Apart from being the advocate for the operators, the Chamber has over the years built a niche for itself as a thought-leader in industry issues.
Mr. Sakyi-Addo has contributed greatly to the growing understanding of the telecommunications industry. “I am very proud of the work that the Chamber has done in aligning our members around key industry initiatives, driving important advocacy programs and building an enviable industry association.
“I’m grateful to the Governing Council, our entire membership and, of course, the Chamber staff for their support over the last six years,” Mr Sakyi-Addo said in a statement issued by the Chamber Sunday. Commenting on the resignation, Ms. Yolanda Cuba, CEO of Vodafone Ghana and Chairperson of the Governing Council of the Chamber said, “Kwaku has made a significant impact during his tenure with the Chamber. “He has built a strong organization focused on our industry’s priorities and advocating effectively on behalf of mobile operators and infrastructure sharing companies across the country.
“We are naturally disappointed that Kwaku has decided to move on to a new opportunity, but we wish him every success as he takes this next exciting step in his career.” said Ms. Cuba. The Telecoms Chamber said it will announce Mr. Sakyi-Addo’s successor in due course. The Chamber is an industry association and a private initiative by the mobile network operators in Ghana. We are an advocacy institution established to help direct telecommunications policy, legislation and regulation, and pursue research towards the development of telecommunications.
As the voice of the mobile operators and tower companies in Ghana, we work through direct engagements with government (institutions), civil society, key stakeholders and consumers to shape the mobile ecosystem and maximize the socio-economic benefits of mobile in Ghana. The Chamber was registered in 2010 and inaugurated in 2011.
