Leaf Wireless restructures for future growth

South African mobile company, Leaf Wireless (Pty) Ltd., says it has restructured its top management in order to take full advantage of future and potential growth.

The company says it has made three key appointments in the restructure. Brandon Leigh, founder and formerly MD, will assume the role of CEO, where his core focus will cover strategy and vision for the company going forward. International expansion and new business opportunities will also fall under his responsibility, according to the company.

The company says that second restructure appointment is that Quinton Leigh, formerly sales and marketing director, will become MD. Leigh's main objective, says the company, will be to ensure the smooth running of the local company, as well as operational and management issues within the organization.

According to the company, the position will also extend to ensuring that both local and international clients are being looked after in accordance with the company's stated intention.

The third change, says the company, is a new appointment in the way of Bruce Cockburn. The company says Cockburn was previously with MTN, which he joined to set up the Electronic Distribution of prepaid airtime. The company notes that Cockburn was then appointed as GM: products and innovation, including the management of electronic distribution, CRM and loyalty.

Cockburn, the company says, will take over the position of sales and marketing executive, and, over and above client relations, will be tasked with identifying new business opportunities for the company, as well as potential product development.

Quinton Leigh says, "Leaf is on the verge of a host of new and exciting things, we have secured international contracts such as the one we signed last year with Australia's Virgin Mobile, and we are starting to take a large chunk of the local market share.

"It is with this that we have had to ensure that, as a company, we are ourselves in a position to embrace this growth and ensure the continued commitment from our customers. It is on the back of the success of the projects we have that we feel the sky is the limit in terms of our future growth."
