The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) has appointed a new secretary-general

Former Africa director at Inmarsat, Shola Taylor, was unveiled last week by the London-based international treaty organisation, which said he was due to begin work in his new role on 17 September 2015.

Currently serving as CEO of ICT consultancy firm Kemilinks International, Taylor has been working in the ICT industry for more than 35 years, in postings covering both the public and private sectors.

“I am both excited and honoured at being appointed as secretary-general of the CTO, a community of diverse membership, and one that has accrued tremendous strengths over a hundred years,” said Taylor. “Given the impact of ICTs in our lives and the enormous opportunities for the socio-economic development of nations, I have accepted this challenge to make a positive contribution towards improved access to ICTs for all.”

Taylor’s previous positions include working as a space technology coordinator and later project director at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a senior engineer at Nigerian Telecommunications, and as a member of the ITU’s Radio Regulations Board.
