Other board members, include; Hassan Kabbani, former CEO of Middle Eastern telecoms giant, Zain; Biola Alabi, based in Nigeria, who was named a ‘Young Global Leader’ by the WEF (World Economic Forum) in 2012 and after a success of philanthropic enterprises is now CEO of her own Media and Entertainment Consultancy; Jean Jaques Pany, is based in France and has an MSc in Mechanical Engineering.

Such a dynamic and well-established board, enables Monty Mobile to drive their mission in helping operators maximize their revenue, by offering a range of innovative solutions, developed by their team of experts. In the last decade, operators across the globe have seen a consistent decline in revenue as a result of OTT (Over the Top) services such as instant messaging, that bypass the operator, in spite of their critical need for network, in order to function.
The emergence of 5G and IoT has once again brought the role of operators and telcos to the forefront of the rapidly advancing digital world and connects them to many opportunities that could consolidate their role as key-players in the telecommunications sector. Furthermore, the current COVID-19 crisis has also placed operators on the global stage – to support and assist the worldwide pandemic. Monty Mobile provides solutions to help operators see an opportunity in every challenge. Now, more than ever, the world is in need of innovative communication and FinTech services that make daily procedures simpler, protect our safety and reach out to the world’s most vulnerable populations. With this in mind, Monty Mobile has developed a range of new services, which incorporate the above and aim to elevate and enhance the role of operators in the international digital revolution.
