Telenor said it is appointing Petter Furberg as CEO of its Bangladeshi operation, Grameenphone, on an interim basis. Furberg will temporarily replace Rajeev Sethi, who is leaving to pursue new opportunities. Sethi has held the role since November 2014. The Grameenphone board of directors will now initiate a process to identify a permanent "solution" for the CEO position.
