Sierra Leone News: Orange CEO bids farewell

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Orange Sierra Leone, Sékou Dramé, will leave Sierra Leone this month. He arrived in July 2016, from Senegal, where he was the Orange Business Service CEO.
Sékou Dramé will be replacing Alioune Ndiaye, the managing director of Orange’s largest African subsidiary joining the parent company as executive director of Orange Africa and the Middle East, in Dakar.
Sékou Dramé, 45, graduated from the National School of Telecommunications at the University of Paris Saclay, headed Orange Sierra Leone since the acquisition of Airtel, in 2016, by Orange and Sonatel.
While in Sierra Leone, Drame helped in rebranding Airtel to Orange Sierra Leone. He also spearheaded the modernisation and expansion plans of its network, and voice and data services.
Since the acquisition, $33 million USD has been invested with 30 new radio sites on air and over half of the entire mobile network upgraded.
Aminata Kane Ndiaye, 33, has been appointed CEO of Orange Sierra Leone replacing Sékou Dramé.
Ndiaye holds an MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) and was previously the head of Orange Money’s marketing department.
A country of 7 million inhabitants, Sierra Leone is home to Sonatel’s third West African subsidiary after Mali and Guinea Conakry, while Guinea Bissau is waiting.
Orange is present in 21 countries in Africa and the Middle East and has more than 127 million customers at the end of June 2017. With 5.2 billion euros in sales in 2016 (12% of the total), this area is a strategic priority for the Group.
