Tele2 CEO Kirkby to become TDC CEO in December

Tuesday 9 October 2018 | 14:31 CET | News

TDC said it is appointing Allison Kirkby as CEO from December 2018. She will be moving to the Danish operator from her current role as president and group CEO at Tele2. Kirkby replaces Pernille Erenbjerg, who announced her resignation in May when the acquisition of TDC by the DK Consortium was announced. 

Erenbjerg will remain CEO until Kirkby takes over. Bert Nordberg, chairman of the board of directors of the TDC Group, described Kirkby as having "visionary leadership" and experience in the telecoms industry. It was announced in January that Kirkby would be handing leadership of Tele2 to Com Hem CEO Anders Nilsson following their merger.

Kirkby has served as Tele2 CEO since September 2015, after first joining the company in May 2014 as CFO. Prior to that she worked as CFO of the TV production company Shine, now part of 21st Century Fox, and was Virgin Media's Executive Director of Finance Operations & Transformation. Before that she worked two decades at Procter & Gamble in a variety of senior financial and operational roles.
