I am humbled by the trust placed in me by IQ-EQ to take on this role and am looking forward to travelling to Manila once COVID-19 restrictions allow. Although I’m leaving one great team for another, I look forward to working with my new colleagues to take our Philippines business to new heights.”
IQ-EQ Group Head of Shared Services, Ursula Wyman, added:
“Abdoulie is a great choice for this role as he’s built significant technical expertise as well as the open and personable leadership style that we require.
