Telefonica Germany CEO to leave company in March

Tuesday 22 November 2016 | 10:26 CET | News
Telefonica Germany CEO Thorsten Dirks will leave his role at the end of March 2017 after deciding to end his contract early. While Dirks' contract was due to run until September, he requested the Telefonica supervisory board vote to release him after the first quarter to "pursue new career challenges", according to a statement from the company. Dirks became CEO in October 2014 following the merger of Telefonica Germany and the E-Plus Group.
