By Ikenna UGWU
Before now, Oladokun had functioned as the Finance Director at Starcomms since December 2011 and will for the next few months combine the responsibilities for both roles.
In the other hand, Pather decided to bow out of Starcomms after 12 months as CEO. He has remained in his post until 31 August to ensure a smooth handover to the new interim chief executive.
Chief Maan Lababidi, Starcomms’ Chairman, said: “On behalf of the board, I want to thank Logan for his contribution to Starcomms. He has led the Company during a very challenging period for the Nigerian CDMA industry and has played an invaluable part in helping to secure Starcomms’ future, not least by strengthening our relationships with customers and suppliers and successfully reducing the cost base of the business.”
“We are delighted that Olusola Oladokun has agreed to lead Starcomms at this difficult time and strongly believe that he has the right skills and experience to successfully continue the work done by Logan Pather.”
Oladokun said: “Starcomms is a fantastic brand and a great company with high caliber staff and an exciting future and a I look forward to contributing to the repositioning of the company as Nigerias’s leading high speed mobile data provider.”
As part of Oladokun’s new role he will also become a director of Starcomms and take a seat on the board of directors.
