Masambu emerges ITSO director-general

The Ugandan former chairman of the Council of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO), Mr. Patrick Masambu,  has been elected director-general of the United States-based International Telecommunications Satellite Organization (ITSO), reports ITRealms.

Mr Masambu was the only Commonwealth candidate for the position. A former communications regulator for Uganda.

He brings to the role over 30 years of experience, including over six years as ITSO’s current deputy director-general and director of technical affairs. He is the first sub-Saharan African to be elected to the position. 

ITRealms recalls that during his time as chairman of CTO Council on behalf of Uganda, Mr Masambu presided over important transformations to turn the CTO into a more member-centric organisation. 

“The election was exciting with three strong candidates. I am delighted to see Patrick elected. He brings tremendous experience to ITSO and I look forward to working with him,” said the CTO’s secretary-general Shola Taylor shortly after Mr Masambu’s election.
