Telenor said it is appointing Petter Furberg as CEO of its Bangladeshi operation, Grameenphone, on an interim basis.

The Grameenphone board of directors will now initiate a process to identify a permanent "solution" for the CEO position. Furberg is currently senior vice president of Telenor Digital Businesses, based in Bangkok. Prior to his current role, Furberg served as CEO of Telenor Myanmar for three years.
