Gérard Lokossou has the reputation of being a hard-working and brilliant man. He has recently become the new Executive Director of Orange DRC.
Nothing predestined this French-Ivorian to be a big shot of mobile telephony in Africa. After graduating from the National Polytechnic Institute of Yamoussoukro where he completed a degree in logistics engineering, this ambitious individual has indeed gradually climbed all the professional ladders when working for major groups such as Unilever, Nestlé, MTN and Airtel in Congo Brazzaville.
The Orange Group, which is among the world leaders in telephony with a presence in 33 countries and more than 200 million subscribers, began in 2015 with the acquisition of Tigo, a decisive turning point in the consolidation of its leadership in the DRC. It is this ship that he has the massive task of steering towards a more in-depth customer focus, increasingly adapted offers and innovations and a territorial service presence that is both sufficient and qualitative.
For Congolese, becoming the reference network that understands and anticipates their needs in a qualitative way to allow them to realise their dreams and stay connected everywhere. Orange also aims to always stay at the forefront of innovation with solutions like Orange Money or Orange Energy. For companies, we strive to remain a reliable partner for their development and finally for the State, Orange endeavours to remain a socially responsible company that plays its full part in the development of this beautiful country.
