After getting the Zong not only a successful launch but fetching above 10 million customers in span of just three years, we are told that Mr. Zafar Usmani, Chief Operating Officer at Zong is stepping down from his position primarily due to domestic reasons.
We have confirmed this information with multiple sources who are directly aware of the development.
Sources said that Mr. Usmani will be spending time with his family in Lahore after the resignation.
Mr. Zafar Usmani, who was key person at Zong’s camp, as a COO positioned the cellular company so well in the industry that the competition companies, who were many fold larger in numbers, had to re-visit their strategies to fight back for customers.
It merits mentioning here that Zong added highest number of customers in current fiscal year.
We are yet to determine Mr. Usmani’s replacement, however, there are clues that Mr. Sikandar Naqi, SEVP Corporate Development at PTCL and Mr. Naveed Saeed, SEVP Commercial at PTCL, are possible contestants.
Reportedly Mr. Fan YunJun, CEO, Zong recently met both the VPs for possible fill-out of the slot, but again we aren’t sure at this point of time about the future COO of Zong.
This is a developing story, we will update our readers when and if we get any further information.
