MTN Partners, a body of distributors of MTN products and services and Agencies responsible for customer acquisition, have extolled the outstanding leadership qualities of the immediate past Chief Sales and Distribution Officer of MTN Nigeria, Adekunle Adebiyi.
Adebiyi currently serves as the Executive Director of Growth and Partnerships at ITEX Integrated Services.
In a well attended sent forth event jointly organised by different tech experts in Lagos, the group commended Adebiyi’s stellar leadership qualities which they said positively contributed to the growth and development of MTN Nigeria over the years.
Commenting on Adebiyi’s remarkable leadership attributes, an MTN Trade Partner, Oye Ojo said he upheld the principles of integrity, fairness, and justice while discharging his duties during his time at MTN Nigeria.
“Adekunle Adebiyi is a boardroom guru who has demonstrated a high level of doggedness, integrity, fairness, and justice while interacting with the entire trade partners of MTN Nigeria.
“He ensured that our operations complied with the standards of regulatory bodies, including that of MTN Nigeria, while he also afforded us the opportunity to contribute our own quota to the development of the country’s telecommunications sector through our business-related engagement with MTN Nigeria.”
After Ojo, many other trade partners and business associates took turns to recount how Adebiyi was a goal-getter and a worker who valued team spirit. They wished him success in all the activities he ventures into, after such good showing at MTN Nigeria.
In response, Adebiyi appreciated the organisers of the event and noted that the achievements he recorded during his time as the Chief Sales and Distribution Officer of MTN Nigeria would have been impossible without the love, support, and cooperation he enjoyed from all the critical stakeholders he interfaced with.
Adebiyi, led MTN Nigeria’s cross-functional team to win the National Identification Management Agency’s (NIMC) mobile-operator award for enrolling over one million Nigerians within six months for their National Identity Numbers, NIN, while he was also instrumental in transforming the distribution infrastructure of MTN Nigeria to reach the semi-urban and rural areas of the country.
