Vere appointed new Telecel boss

HARARE - Angeline Vere has been appointed as Telecel Zimbabwe (Telecel)’s new chief executive with effect from June 1, 2015.

The trained lawyer, who has been the company’s general manager for years, takes over from Francis Mawindi who was axed in 2013.

James Makamba, Telecel’s board chairman, on Thursday said Vere’s appointment was “in line with the company’s equal employment opportunity and empowerment policies”.

“The board wishes her well as the organisation gears itself to tackle exciting opportunities that are designed to unlock its true potential,” he said.

Vere joined Telecel in 2004 as legal manager and in 2010 was subsequently promoted as company secretary and legal director.

She has more than 17 years of experience in the telecommunications industry having worked for companies such as Post and Telecommunications Corporation (now TelOne) and the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe among other companies.

The latest development comes as Zimbabwe’s third largest mobile telecommunications company was last month given the green light by the High Court to continue operations after the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (Potraz) cancelled their licence and gave the company one month to wind up business.
