Not a lot of businesses or organisations go through such rapid transition – financial or otherwise – and survive. But that’s not the case for 9mobile. Despite challenges faced in the last two years, 9mobile has continued to hold up and remains a strong contender. For this reason and more, 9mobile has emerged as Telecom Company of the Year 2018, an addition to its long list of honours and recognitions.
On Thursday, February 7, 2019, 9mobile was honoured as the Telecom Company of the Year 2018 by Leadership Group Limited, publishers of Leadership newspaper. This award came as a recognition of 9mobile’s resilience and stability in the face of challenges which the company pulled through over the past two years.
The Group Managing Director of Leadership Group Limited, Abdul Gombe, while presenting the award to 9mobile during an awards ceremony which held at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, said the decision to honour 9mobile as the Telecom Company of the Year was a unanimous decision reached by an enlarged Board of Editors at a recent meeting.
While receiving the award, Acting Managing Director, 9mobile, Stephane Beuvelet, commended the Leadership Group Limited for finding the telco worthy of the honour, stating that it would serve as further motivation to the new board and management to continue building a world-class telecommunication company. He also pledged 9mobile’s commitment to transacting business with integrity, putting value for customer spend at the core of its propositions, and disrupting the market with innovative products and services.
This award is part of the longlist of awards 9mobile has won. In November 2018, 9mobile also emerged one of the highest year-on-year gainers on the list of ‘Top 50 Brands Nigeria’ 2018 for its innovation, customer-centricity, youth empowerment and impactful Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Kudos to 9mobile!
