Liquid Telecom has named Reshaad Sha as its new CEO for the South African region, effective 1 June, 2018.

Sha has previously worked as CEO of SqwidNet, an open access Internet of Things (IOT) network operator, and as chief strategy officer and executive director of Dark Fibre Africa, an open access fibre optic company. He has also worked in management positions in a variety of tech and telecoms companies, including Cisco and LogicaCMG.

Liquid Telecom says Sha will oversee growth and development of digital services and the rollout of enhanced network services for enterprises and consumers across South Africa.

"We're delighted to have found such a talented and skilled individual to fill this role," says Nic Rudnick, Group CEO, Liquid Telecom. "Reshaad's entrepreneurial spirit and dynamic leadership make him the perfect addition to the Liquid Telecom Group as we continue to deliver on our vision of building Africa's digital future."

In March, Kyle Whitehill, the previous SA CEO left the company. In a statement issued by Liquid Telecom it said he was leaving the company at the end of his contract to return to the UK to be with his family.

Garth Schooling, Liquid Telecom's managing executive of new business development, has been appointed as interim CEO since Whitehill's departure in March, and will remain in charge at Liquid Telecom South Africa until Sha's arrival.
