Ralph Mupita new MTN CFO

Telecoms giant MTN has named Ralph Mupita (pictured), Old Mutual Emerging Markets chief, as its new group chief financial officer, effective April 2017. Gunter Engling, acting group CFO, will assume the position of deputy CFO, MTN said in a statement.

Phuthuma Nhleko, MTN executive chairman, said of the appointment:

"I am delighted to have someone of Ralph's calibre join the team. His background in financial services and emerging markets will stand him in good stead in his new role as group chief financial officer."

Brett Goschen resigned as CFO earlier this year, in July, after more than a decade with the company.
