According to a statement issued to the press today, Ms Tiano has been at Tigo’s helm in interim capacity since the beginning of the year. She has enjoyed considerable success with the company including the launches of Tigo Music and 4G network, making Tigo the first telecommunications company to provide the technology in the country.
“Further to the successful conclusion of the specific projects that Ms Tiano was brought in to conduct as an Interim General Manager, Mr Gutierrez will provide management continuity to grow the new initiatives successfully”, the statement reads.
Mr Gutierrez’s knowledge of the business and the market allows for a seamless business transition. Prior to his time with the company’s mobile money division in Latin America, he had been Tigo Tanzania’s General Manager for three years. Mr Gutierrez has 15 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, having worked in several markets in Latin America and Africa.
“I am delighted to resume work with an enthusiastic team who collectively share the Tigo vision of providing digital lifestyle transformation to Tanzanians”, Mr Gutierrez says in the statement.
