Sajid Mahmood, Chief Information Officer of Zong, China Mobile Pakistan, will now be leading the company in the capacity of Chief Commercial Officer as well, said a statement issued by the company.
He is already heading IT, Corporate Sales, Legal, Regulatory and OAS functions of the company. In effect, with these changes, Marketing, Sales & Distribution and Customer Services will also be reporting to Mr. Sajid.
On this appointment Zong’s CEO Mr. Fan Yunjun commented, “The Company has been very fortunate to have outstanding employees who have shown great commitment to their work. Sajid Mahmood is an enthusiastic and hardworking person with flare for novelty and meticulousness. We are certain that he will bring more success to Zong.”
CCO’s position was freed by Mr. Zafar Usmani in June this year when he had resigned for domestic reasons.
Earlier we had heard that Zong might not fill CCO’s slot and directors will be asked to report directly to CEO and this is why the slot was not filled for this long. Now with Mr. Sajid’s appointment the company will keep working under the same administrational hierarchy as before.
Sajid has also been a member of China Mobile Pakistan Limited Board of Directors and Executive Management Team(EMT). He has diversified and wide experience in leadership, product/process development, strategic planning and organization operational efficiency.
