Belgacom hires Russels Reynolds to search for new CEO

Tuesday 26 November 2013 | 10:03 CET | News
Belgacom has hired the executive recruitment firm Russell Reynolds to help in its search for a new CEO. The headhunter will assemble a list of candidates from which the Belgacom board will make a proposal to the Belgian government. The state, as the largest shareholder in the Belgian operator, will have the final decision on the new CEO. Earlier this month Didier Bellens was dismissed as CEO after losing the state's confidence. CFO Ray Stewart is serving as interim CEO, with support form chairman Stefaan De Clerck.
