Telkom Kenya has appointed Mr. Kris Senanu as the MD of its Enterprise Division, effective Monday, August 1, 2016. The Enterprise Division comes up as a result of a name change from the initially announced structure that had identified the unit as the Fixed Division.
“Senanu’s regional experience and skillset to create strategic clarity, drive innovation and growth, result-oriented style, coupled with his passion for technology, will help ensure the turnaround of Telkom Kenya’s Enterprise segment,” says Company CEO, Aldo Mareuse, adding that “this is a key stone of our long term, global Transformation Project, as a business.”
Mr. Senanu brings 20 years’ experience into the business. He had announced his exit from Internet Solutions Kenya (formerly Access Kenya Group), a few weeks ago, where he was the Deputy CEO, a position he has held since March, 2014, having grown through the ranks at the same company from Commercial Manager in 2001, to Chief Operating Officer in 2005 and to Managing Director – Internet Division, up until the first quarter of 2014.
An MBA holder from Warwick University (UK), a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration, Marketing focus from the United States International University Africa, a CIM Chartered Marketer, Senamu joins Amer Atwi and George Mokogi, newly appointed MDs of the Mobile and Carrier Services Divisions, respectively, to reinforce the progressive strengthening of the company’s Senior Management Team.
Senanu also chairs the country’s Domain registry institution – Kenya Network Information Center (KENIC) and the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) Business Committee. He is also a previous chair of the Telecommunications Service Providers of Kenya.
Earlier this month, Telkom Kenya had announced the formation of four primary Business Units: Mobile, Fixed, Wholesale and Real Estate. The firm says it will change the names of two divisions: The Fixed Division will now be known as the Enterprise Division, while the Wholesale Division will now be known as the Carrier Services Division.
