French-headquartered international operator Orange has swapped out seven of its national chief executive officers in Africa and the Middle East, as part of a policy that sees senior positions allocated for fixed periods.
The firm has appointed new CEOs in Niger, Madagascar, Mali, Tunisia, Mauritius, Senegal and Jordan, with the appointments effective from October 1st.
Marc Rennard, senior executive vice president of France Telecom-Orange for Africa, the Middle East and Asia, said: “All of the new Chief Executive Officers have substantial international experience in the telecommunications sector. I am confident in their ability to continue to develop the activities of these seven subsidiaries, where we operate under the Orange brand. I also wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to each of their predecessors, who made significant contributions to the growth and solid economic performance of their companies.”
With Amazon and Google launching smart home initiatives, have the telcos missed out on their chance to cash in on this market?
