Eaton’s procurement priorities


CTO Thomas Jonell reveals what opex saving equipment and services Eaton are buying, and how they buy it

Thomas Jonell has been a CTO in African telecoms for more than ten years. He served as Celtel’s CTO in Nigeria and DRC before spending the last five years at the helm of the technology side of Eaton Towers’ business. TowerXchange wanted to know which categories of partner selection merited the most attention from the CTO, and to understand how one of Africa’s ‘Big Four’ towercos define their requirements, select partners and evaluate performance of key equipment and service partners.

TowerXchange: Thanks for speaking to us today Thomas. Please tell us about Eaton’s procurement processes.

Thomas Jonell, CTO, Eaton Towers:

Eaton Towers puts a lot of emphasis on procurement – deploying capital effectively is critical to our ability to create value for our customers, our investors and ourselves.
