The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications has organised a private farewell cocktail in honour of outgoing Chief Executive of Airteltigo Mr. Murthy Chaganti, on May 27, 2021 in Accra, for his outstanding contributions toward the telecommunications industry.
The cocktail event was attended by Chief Executive Officers and representatives of the various mobile network operators, tower and infrastructure companies, as well as the Bank of Ghana, National Communications Authority and others.
Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber, Dr. Kenneth Ashigbey, in his opening remarks described Mr. Chaganti as a “pacesetter” and role-model. According to him, the outgoing Chief Executive was passionate and dedicated to his work when he working at the helm of Airteltigo.
Mr. Selorm Adadevoh, CEO of MTN, in his remarks lauded Murthy for his tremendous work as Chairman of the Governing Council of the Chamber – especially leading the team to address critical issues which accrued to the benefit of the Chamber’s members.
