Belgacom appoints CEO

Belgian operator Belgacom has appointed Dominique Leroy as its CEO, following the firing of former CEO Didier Bellens.

Leroy joined Belgacom in October 2011 and has been EVP of the operator’s consumer business unit since June 2012. Previously, she had worked at Unilever for 24 years eventually holding the position of managing director of Unilever Benelux.

Belgium’s state government is the largest Belgacom shareholder and prime minister Elio Di Rupo announced the news via his Twitter account adding that he wishes her every success.

Her predecessor, Bellens, was sacked by the government in November last year after Di Rupo said that the government could no longer tolerate the public criticisms that Bellens had levelled at it.
