The award was conferred on 9mobile in recognition of its resilience and stability in the face of challenges over the past two years. You will agree with me that the company has passed through a lot in recent years, and despite all the challenges she still stands.
Group Managing Director of Leadership Group Limited, Abdul Gombe, who presented the accolade to 9mobile in a ceremony in Abuja had some few words to say regarding the award;
The decision to honour 9mobile was unanimously reached by its Enlarged Board of Editors at a recent meeting
He went ahead to commend the company for emerging stronger from its many tests, including the challenging operating environment, tough regulatory requirements, the threat of take-over by a banking consortium and post-acquisition realities.
Stephane Beuvelet, who is the Acting Managing Director of 9mobile, received the award and expressed his appreciation to the newspaper for finding it worthy of the honour, saying it would serve as further motivation to the new board and management to continue building a world-class telecommunications company.
Other members of the 9mobile team present at the event included the Chief Financial Officer, Phillips Oki, Company Secretary, Ore Olajide, and Executive Director, Regulatory and Corporate Affairs, Abdulrahman Ado.
They pledged 9mobile’s commitment to transacting business with integrity, putting value for customers at the core of its propositions, as well as disrupting the market with innovative products.
Last year was not all bad for 9mobile though as the company emerged one of the highest year-on-year gainers on the list of ‘Top 50 Brands Nigeria’ for its innovation, customer-centricity, youth empowerment and impactful Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
