A new path: Wateen Telecom appoints new CEO

(Express Tribune (Pakistan) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Wateen Telecom on Saturday announced the appointment of Rizwan Tiwana as chief executive officer of the company.

Former CEO and board member Naeem Zamindar stepped down after completing a three-and-a-half year tenure during which the company was reconstructed and reorganised.

Tiwana brings over 19 years of diverse experience in the telecom industry including leading large-scale operators and global network vendors from different parts of the world. His management role for operators includes his recent role as chief technology officer (CTO) at Fanoos Telecom Iraq for the last two years. He was also engaged in senior management roles by Nokia Siemens Network and Motorola in UAE for more than three years.

Tiwana also worked with Marconi UAE contributing to their success in innovative triple play projects. He was also instrumental in Wateen telecom as CTO for more than four years since the commencement of its business in Pakistan.

Zamindar's contribution was appreciated by the board. It enabled Wateen to emerge from a loss-making entity to one which is generating positive earnings before income tax depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) and is now viewed as a stable organisation set to build on these successes, said an official statement issued by the company.

Tiwana brings a wealth of experience in broadband industry management. The statement said that the board was confident that he will lead the organisation in the right direction and will enable Wateen Telecom to become the preferred provider in Pakistan.
