African pay-TV platform M-Net has reorganised its African operations and appointed Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu as its first regional director for West Africa.

"Such has been the increase in our pan-African viewership that we recently decided to split our African operations into West and East Africa. This will enable us to increase our presence in these regions, and to focus on delivering content and services that are tailored to exactly what our audiences want," said Patricia van Rooyen, CEO, M-Net Sub-Saharan Africa.

Mba-Uzoukwu joined M-Net as regional manager in October 2012 from Airtel Nigeria Limited where she was head of brand and marketing communications.

"Wangi will head up an extremely strong content team that will capitalise on the excellent reputation and popularity that M-Net has amongst hundreds of thousands of West Africans viewers," added Van Rooyen.
Mba-Uzoukwu will take up her new position on 1 March 2014.
