Ex-VimpelCom CEO Nemsic to head up SON specialist

The former CEO of VimpelCom and Telekom Austria, Boris Nemsic, has gone back to his engineering roots, reappearing this week as chairman of the board of Cellwize, a Self Organizing Networks (SON) specialist.

Founded by RAN experts in 2008 as an optimisation services company, Cellwize launched a commercial SON platform in 2012 and won contracts in EMEA, APAC and Europe. The company claims that mobile networks using its technology continuously react to real-time changes and match capacity, coverage and quality with evolving usage patterns and real users’ needs. Cellwize is targeting two value propositions: a significant and measurable reduction in OPEX; and a superior personalised user experience that can target areas of high-value density.

Nemsic is the author of numerous technical papers as well as a participant at several IEEE conferences. “Involvement in a SON solution that addresses challenges facing operators today and significantly reduces capex and opex whilst increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty is unique and exciting,” he said.

Prior to his appointment at both Telekom Austria and VimpelCom, which he left in 2010, Nemsic served as the CEO at Mobilkom Austria and Vipnet; he was also a board member of the worldwide GSM Association and chairman of its Public Policy Committee. Currently Nemsic holds several board positions including executive partner in Delta Partners Dubai and chairman of the board in an Austrian MVNO technology company.
