Tele2 NL CEO choice puts focus on marketing, not network

Tuesday 4 March 2014 | 13:11 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Tele2 Netherlands will have a new CEO from 14 April: Jeff Dodds. He comes from UK operator Virgin Media, where he was chief marketing officer. Following the takeover of Virgin Media by Liberty Global (completed in June 2013), he served as strategy consultant for Libery Global and the Swedish operator Com Hem. Tele2's previous CEO in the Netherlands, Gunther Vogelpoel, left in November 2013 and CFO Ernst-Jan van Rooijen has been serving as interim CEO. Van Rooijen will revert to CFO once Dodds takes up the new job.
