SFR lets fibre network director go – report

Monday 25 September 2017 | 16:12 CET | News

SFR’s fibre deployment director, Thierry Vanderaspoilden, will reportedly leave his position after taking on the role in mid-2016, reveals Universfreebox. Based on information gathered by La Letter A, Altice executive Armando Pereira would be behind the decision, as SFR faces a period of change following the resignation of its CEO Michel Paulin, announced on 11 September.

Commenting on the resignation of Paulin, Le Monde reported that Pereira was likely to join SFR after his appointment to the advisory board of Altice in February. This followed his departure as chairman of Altice’s subsidiary PT Portugal.

The background to these developments is that SFR unveiled a challenging fibre deployment strategy in July, which aimed to force a rethink of France’s national broadband plan.
