Prior to this, Mr Obeng-Agyei spent a considerable period at Zain Communications Ghana Ltd, now Airtel Ghana, in Sales Management, Channel Development, Retail and Mobile Commerce.

As Head of Vodafone Cash, it will be his responsibility to build a strong team to make the product the “most preferred” mobile money service in Ghana. Mr Obeng-Agyei holds an EMBA in Marketing, from the University of Ghana Business School.
