Merali announces his retirement from Airtel Kenya

23 May 2014, 14:32 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Bharti Airtel Kenya Chairman Naushad N. Merali Friday announced his retirement from the company after 15 years of service.

Merali was the founder of Kencell, now Airtel Kenya and is one of Kenya’s most respected industry captains having invested in various sectors of the Kenya economy.

He has served as the chairman of the company since 1999, at the advent of Kenya’s mobile technology revolution.

The 63-year-old is the founder of the Sameer Group, a business conglomerate with activities in transport, construction, agriculture, dairy, information technology, telecoms, finance and other sectors.

A seasoned business entrepreneur, Merali has also served on various Presidential committees relating to trade and social services and is a member of the National Economic and Social Council.

 “I take this opportunity to sincerely thank the entire Board for the support extended to me during my tenure as Chairman. I will always be available to assist the Board and the Company whenever I am required to do so,” he said noting that his increased commitment within the Sameer Group has made him desire to retire as chair of Airtel Kenya board.

 “We are extremely grateful for the excellent leadership and guidance offered by Mr. Merali in steering the Airtel Kenyan operation for over a decade,” said Christian de Faria, CEO Airtel Africa.

 “Merali’s contribution and counsel has been invaluable for the business and we will continue to consult as he is a part of the Airtel family. His passion for the telecoms sector and dynamism as a leader has made an indelible mark and we wish him well as he pursues other business,” he added.
