KDN seeks new CFO and CCO, prefers local talent

Friday 5 April 2013 | 11:10 CET | News
Kenya Data Network (KDN) will shake up its executive line-up in order to turn around its fortunes, Business Daily reported. KDN said it would not renew the contracts of chief financial officer Roger Warren or chief commercial officer and Atul Chaturvedi when they end this month. In February, KDN got new owners after UK's Liquid Telecom bought a 60.8 percent stake from South Africa's Altech. CEO Shahab Meshki said the firm will start the search to fill the CFO and CCO positions, adding that it would give preference to local talent.
