CXO-perspectives from Africa’s leading towercos
As African towercos enter a new phase of life, what comes next for investment, diversification and new markets?
Our opening towerco panel at the TowerXchange Meetup Africa 2019 was chaired by Chuck Green, late of Crown Castle, formerly CEO of Helios Towers Africa and now CEO of the International Digital Infrastructure Alliance (IDIA). He was joined by Terry Rhodes, CEO of Eaton Towers, Nate Foster, CEO of Atlas Tower and Steve Howden, Deputy CFO of IHS Towers. Our Meetup proved timely, taking place a week before Helios Towers’ IPO. Even as the industry enters a new phase, our panellists foresee continued investment in macro towers dominating, with space to diversify and new opportunities in new markets ahead.
