Raj Jandu new Neotel CFO

Raj Jandu (pictured) has been appointed Neotel CFO – a role that has stood empty since late 2015. Jandu joins Neotel from Liquid Telecom, where he has been CFO for the East Africa region since 2013. Liquid Telecom group officially acquired Neotel earlier this year, at a cost of R6.55 billion.

Jandu said of his appointment:

"I am delighted to be joining the Neotel management team as we look to strengthen the company's finances and significantly grow its market share across South Africa."

Jandu previously served as CFO of Altech Technologies in East Africa for five years, moving to Liquid Telecom after it acquired Altech's networks assets. Prior to this he was finance manager for Sameer Investments, and senior manager for budgeting and budget control at telecoms group, du, in Dubai.

Jandu and his recently appointed colleague Michael Allschwang, Neotel's new chief sales and marketing officer, are part of a new leadership team that will oversee major investment in Neotel's networks and services following the Liquid Telecom acquisition.
