Ms. Mawuena Adjo Dumor, Corporate Service Executive of MTN Ghana, said Ghana was chosen because of its friendly business environment among other things.
She said the WECA headquarters would be located at MTN Ghana's head office in Accra and would be the administrative hub of the nine countries that constituted the WECA region.
"The establishment of the office in Ghana provides enormous benefits not only to our business but to the country and we are excited to be hosting it," Ms Dumor
said the benefits include leveraging economies of scale in respect of supply of telecoms infrastructure across the region, which will have positive implications for the national agenda to make Ghana the gateway to West Africa.
said it would also create opportunities to apply Ghanaian knowledge, expertise and experience to other MTN operating units' technical and stakeholder engagement initiatives.
Ghana has been recognized at the MTN Group level for execution excellence in Marketing and Social Responsibility.
"Indeed the Ghana operating unit continues to support knowledge sharing in these key areas of the business," Ms Dumor
The Ghanaian top executives at MTN Ghana are Mr. George Kwadwo Andah, Chief Marketing Officer, Ms Mawuena Adjo Dumor, Corporate Services Executive, Mr. Ebenezer Asante, Sales Executive, Mrs. Ama Benneh Amponsah, Human Resource Director, and now Mrs. Jemima Kotei Walsh.
