JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – VODACOM Group has appointed William Mzimba as Chief Officer for Vodacom Business.

The appointment is effective from May 1.

He will be responsible for Vodacom’s enterprise units in Africa and will lead a strong team tasked with driving digital transformation in targeted industries and markets.

Shameel Joosub, Vodacom Group Chief Executive Officer, confirmed Mzimba’s appointment.

“We are delighted to welcome William to the group as Chief Officer of Vodacom Business. William is recognised as one of the continent’s distinguished business and thought leaders. He brings to Vodacom a range of industry experience that will be beneficial to the Group and its clients,” Joosub said.

Mzimba joins Vodacom from Accenture where he held the position of Chief Executive and Chairman of Accenture in Africa since 2006.

During this 18-year tenure, he oversaw the growth and strategy of Accenture in Africa, advised clients on their business strategies and helped transform their businesses through technology platforms.
He fills the role vacated by Vuyani Jarana in October last year.

“I join Vodacom at a particularly exciting time for the Group as it is focused on delivering exponential change through technology for customers and clients and will be a significant player in ensuring that the continent participates fully in the fourth industrial revolution,” Mzimba.
