Tele-Mobile South Sudan (TMSS) has appointed the former head of Ethio-telecom, Andualem Admase (Ph.D.), as its Chief Executive Officer.
Andualem is expected to bring his rich experience in the telecom sector to TMSS, which is the fourth-largest telecommunications network company in South Sudan, following MTN, Zain, and Digitel.
The appointment comes a month after TMSS signed a strategic partnership agreement with Ethiopia’s state-owned telecoms operator Ethio Telecom.
Owned by renowned Ethiopian investor and philanthropist, Aysheshim Teka, TMSS aspires to expand its services in the South Sudanese telecom market.
Aysheshim, who has spent the last 15 years residing in Juba, South Sudan, is well known for engaging in a variety of business ventures.
In recognition of his contributions to world peace, development, and humanitarian aid while residing in South Sudan, the government of that country awarded him honorary citizenship in 2019.
He is also a recipient of the “Africa Economy Builders Awards” last year in Côte d’Ivoire for his outstanding contributions to economic development in Africa.
