Mrs Patricia Obo-Nai, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Vodafone Ghana, has been adjudged the best CEO in telecoms at the "Industry CEO Awards" ceremony held in Accra.
The event, which was based on 100 per cent public votes through SMS, is an annual event aimed at identifying and publicly recognising the most outstanding Chief Executives across a wide range of sectors.
In a statement from Vodafone to the Ghana News Agency, Mrs Obo-Nai said: "It is truly delightful to be acknowledged. I thank Ghanaians for recognising my commitment towards innovation and transformation.
"This award really reflects the tremendous work of our dedicated employees and senior management, who have been supportive and remarkable; and the great products, and quality network delivery over the period."
The statement explained that the award was an affirmation of the impact the CEO was already making, barely seven months in office.
Key amongst them are the simplification of Vodafone's products and the introduction of the industry-first real family product - Vodafone One.
Additionally, she also displayed leadership by empowering 700 young girls with STEM education and digital coding; and network expansion, the statement noted.
Vodafone is currently offering its mobile money customers an unprecedented experience of sending money to other Vodafone Cash wallets without transfer charges, it added.
