KPN has named a new CEO, after withdrawing the appointment of Proximus CEO Dominique Leroy. COO Joost Farwerk, named temporary chairment of the management board and executive committee in September, will now lead the company. KPN also named a new CFO, Chris Figee, who will be joining from ASR Netherlands. KPN said the new team will ensure the company is on track for its 2019-2021 strategy. The new CEO said he will focus primarily on that strategy, and on seeing how it can deliver "even more" organic sustainable growth.
