Local ICT leader joins the regional executive team to support the company’s growth in Zambia
Lusaka, Zambia – Liquid Intelligent Technologies has appointed Mark Townsend as CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Zambia. He will be directly responsible for the leadership and strategic management of Liquid Intelligent Technologies’s business operations across Zambia.
Raised in Zambia, Mark has more than a decade of senior leadership experience with a long-standing career working across the ICT sector in Zambia. His background includes three years as Director of Enterprise Business at MTN Zambia and leadership roles at AfriConnect and Vodacom. He joins Liquid Intelligent Technologies from GardaWorld where he was Managing Director of its business in Zambia.
Mark’s arrival coincides with the company’s next phase of growth – providing fast, reliable connectivity and digital services to more business and consumers across Zambia. This follows the successful launch of Liquid Fibre and Liquid Data-On-The-Go as part of the company’s rebrand from Hai to Liquid Intelligent Technologies – overseen and lead by Susan Mulikita, former CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Zambia, who resigned to pursue other interests.
“On behalf of the entire team, I would like to welcome Mark and also thank Susan for her tremendous contribution to the business. In just over a year, she established Liquid Intelligent Technologies Zambia as the country’s leading fibre network and mobile data solutions provider, while also building a strong and stable foundation for continued growth, including the successful integration and rebrand of our retail business, Hai. As we bid farewell and thanks to Susan, I am delighted that Mark has accepted the role of CEO,” said Wellington Makamure, CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Southern Africa Region.
During her time with the company, Susan Mulikita developed meaningful and robust relationships between Liquid Intelligent Technologies Zambia and key stakeholders including government, regulators, business partners and customers who Mark Townsend and his executive team will continue to engage with.
