How Atlas Towers intends to build a significant presence in South Africa
We spoke to Nathan Foster, entrepreneurial leader of the fast-growing Atlas Towers, about where he sees opportunity in the African tower market
With the ‘land grab’ over and the big towercos competing for the last substantial sale and leaseback tower deals to come to market, middle market towercos and new entrants into the African market need to think quickly and creatively to carve a niche which will deliver the targeted return on capital invested. For the first time, Nathan Foster shared his vision with us for the South African market and discussed how he thinks the future of towers on the continent will look.
TowerXchange: Can you tell us about your history, how Atlas Towers was created and where you are today?
Nathan Foster, CEO, Atlas Towers:
I’ve been in towers since 1996, before there was a recognized tower industry.
