Philipp Humm, Vodafone CEO for Europe region, has decided to resign from the telecom operator.
As a result, Vodafone Germany CEO Hannes Ametsreiter, Vodafone Italy CEO Aldo Bisio, Vodafone UK CEO Jeroen Hoencamp and Vodafone Spain CEO Antonio Coimbra will report to the Vodafone Group Chief Executive, Vittorio Colao. They will also become members of the Group Executive Committee.
Germany, Italy, UK and Spain are the key four telecom markets for Vodafone.
Vodafone Netherlands CEO Rob Shuter will also join the Group Executive Committee and will assume additional leadership responsibilities for Vodafone’s smaller European markets, reporting directly to Vittorio Colao.
Vodafone said corporate functions operating at regional level in Europe will be integrated within the respective Group functions. There are no changes to the leadership structure for the Group’s Africa, Middle East and Asia-Pacific region.
Vodafone Group CEO Vittorio Colao said: “These changes will streamline the management of our largest European markets and accelerate our strategic plans in those countries as convergence gathers pace and our Project Spring organic investment program and focus on efficiency deliver visible results.”
