(Business in Cameroon) - Since August 21, 2019, Jean Pascal Nkou has been heading the Cameroonian electricity regulator Agence de régulation du secteur de l’électricité (Arsel) as the new managing director. He is replacing Jean Pierre Kedi whose 9-year regulatory mandate at the head of the public company has expired.
Before his appointment via a presidential decree, the new managing director was the head of analysis and economic policies at the ministry of economy, planning and land development.
His appointment as the head of the Arsel occurs just one day after the appointment of Ahmadou Sardaouna as state-owned real estate company Société immobilière du Cameroun (SIC)’s managing director. These appointments are the precursors of many to come because most of the deputy managing directors and presidents of administrative boards have largely exceeded the 9-year regulatory mandate.
