Following his retirement from Airtel Africa, Ogunsanya will also be available to advise the Chairman, the Airtel Africa Board and the Chief Executive Officer for 12 months.
The company also announced the appointment of Sunil Taldar as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer to succeed Ogunsanya on his retirement.
Taldar, who joined Airtel Africa in October 2023 as Director – Transformation, will begin the transition to the CEO role, working alongside Ogunsanya.
Following a transition period, Taldar will be appointed to the Board as an Executive Director and assume the role of CEO on 1 July 2024, at which time Ogunsanya will step down from the Board and retire from the company.
Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman of Airtel Africa plc said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Segun Ogansanya for his commitment and significant contribution to Airtel Africa plc as Chief Executive and before that as Managing Director and CEO of Nigeria, our largest market in Africa.”
“I am pleased Segun has agreed, following his retirement, to assume the new role as Chair of the Airtel Africa Charitable Foundation, where he will bring his visionary leadership to this new philanthropic initiative to advance development and prosperity across Africa. Segun will retire from the Board with our very best wishes and sincere appreciation for everything he has achieved.”

His industry experience, strategic vision, constant customer focus and proven record of delivery will enable him to deliver our strategic objectives and to lead the Group in the next stages of its development.” (ANI)
