SEACOM has announced the appointment of Tejpal Bedi to the role of Managing Director and Regional Head of Sales for the ENEA region, effective from November 1, 2021.

Tejpal Bedi joins SEACOM with a wealth of experience in leading and driving high performing organisations within the telecommunications and ICT sectors in East Africa. Before joining SEACOM, he was Managing Director of CloudSmiths East Africa, a position he has held since 2015.

Prior to this, he held the position of Managing Director for Internet Solutions East Africa where he transformed (Iconnect) into a global player in the industry, and also founded the training and consulting company, Cambridge Africa, which is the IBM training partner across seven African countries.

Tejpal has a degree in Business Studies from the University of Wales, UK, and an MBA from the University of Leicester, UK. He also serves as a Director at TESPOK, the body that manages the Kenya Internet Exchange Point and the voice of the Kenyan telecommunication industry. He’s also the past Chairman and Founder of Kenya IT and Outsourcing Service (KITOS), providing policy and direction within the IT-enabled services industry and government.

“We are delighted to welcome Tejpal Bedi on board. We have every confidence that his wealth of experience will enable us to drive growth in the region, and help us to better serve our wholesale and enterprise clients in this key region. This is an exciting time for Tejpal and the SEACOM Kenya team as a whole,” said Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at SEACOM Group, Steve Briggs.

Over the past two years, the SEACOM Kenya team has made great strides in transforming the business from a dedicated wholesale provider to a challenger enterprise player, serving high-profile brands in the banking and manufacturing sectors, amongst others.  As the owner of Africa’s most extensive ICT infrastructure, the company has successfully delivered high-quality and affordable Internet bandwidth into dynamic and ever-expanding markets.  With the recent acquisition of the Hirani Telecommunications Metro Fibre Network, SEACOM’s enterprise expansion in the region is progressing on the right track.

SEACOM Group continues to narrow the digital divide on the continent and enable more African citizens to participate in today’s digital economy.
