Casey Carl, MATTER Board Chair, expressed the board’s enthusiasm to welcome Chipo as a fellow Director.

“We are excited Chipo is joining the MATTER board. As we continue to further strengthen our international relationships and execute against our strategy, having a highly-qualified board member from Africa will infuse valuable in-country and continent-wide insights into our efforts.”

As a leading businesswoman in Zimbabwe, Chipo brings extensive experience in executive leadership and management. Prior to heading TelOne, Chipo was Group Chief Executive of Rainbow Tourism Group (RTG), from October 2004 to March 2012.
