Tigo boss named Most Promising Swedish Female Executive

The Chief Executive Officer of Tigo Ghana Limited, Roshi Motman, has been named as the second young, most promising and prominent female executive on Sweden’s tall list of 75 outstanding women.

At an awards ceremony held in Stockholm by Swedish-based non-governmental organisation, Ledana (The Leaders), Roshi Motman was acknowledged for her outstanding contributions in turning around the fortunes of telecommunication company, Tigo Ghana.

A citation presented to her, among other presents, also touted her all-inclusive leadership style.

Receiving the award, Ms Motman was grateful for the vote of confidence by the jury and thanked her leadership team in Ghana for their continued support.

“I see myself as a conductor. My role is not to make the music but to ensure I have the best team that can play various tunes so together we can make great music,” she said.

Roshi Motman joined Tigo Ghana in April 2014.

Under her able and forward leadership, a new Tigo emerged, aggressively trying to recapture lost grounds.

The various innovations by Tigo has also culminated in 9 nominations for the upcoming Ghana Telecom Awards.

They include Innovative Product of the Year; Mobile Money Service of the Year; Mobile Broadband Internet of the Year; Marketing Campaign of the Year; Telecom Brand of the Year; CSR Company of the Year; and Mobile Operator of the Year just to mention a few.

For the 9th year running, Ledana (The Leaders), has been organizing the top female executive awards; they have a reputation for protecting the interests of managers and understanding the managerial role of Swedish leaders.
