Tizeti, a West African solar-powered internet service provider, has expanded its leadership team with the appointments of Amanosi Okhakhu as Chief Financial Officer, Omobolaji Akinde as Vice President of Marketing, and Temitope Osunrinde as Vice President of Business Development.
The appointments, according to the statement, come at a time when the company is entering a new phase of international growth and network expansion.
“We are excited to welcome Amanosi Okhakhu, Temitope Osunrinde, and Omobolaji Akinde to Tizeti,” said Kendall Ananyi, Tizeti’s Founder and CEO.
“Amanosi Okhakhu brings expertise in financial and assurance services to corporate entities in Nigeria and the United Kingdom to her role.” Omobolaji Akinde joins Tizeti with experience in enterprise sales and business development in telecommunications.
“Temitope Osunrinde has extensive experience in marketing and the digital infrastructure sector, which will be critical to the brand experience, growth, and long-term success of the company, particularly as we expand across the globe.”
The new additions to Tizeti’s executive leadership come at a time when the company is entering a new phase of international growth and network expansion, according to the company.
The company tested its next-generation WiFi technology (WiGig) at its NextGEN conference in 2021, capable of delivering internet speeds up to 1 GBPS – more than 30X Nigeria’s average internet speed.
Tizeti also announced that its unlimited internet plans, which are currently available in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Rivers, and Edo States, will be expanded to new locations in Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, and Cote d’Ivoire over the next eighteen months.
Tizeti’s role in Nigeria’s and West Africa’s low-cost unlimited internet market provides enormous opportunities to combat digital exclusion for millions in the region.
The company’s continued focus on providing affordable broadband access via innovative solar-powered masts will move the needle significantly closer to the continent’s digital economy and provide more Africans with digital tools for work, education, healthcare, entertainment, and markets, among other things.
