Friday 13 September 2019 | 08:53 CET | News
The chairman of Telecom Italia (TIM), Fulvio Conti, has confirmed that he's prepared to step down from his position to ease tensions among the operator's shareholders, confirming an earlier report in La Repubblica. In a statement, Conti said he was considering the move "in light of the renewed climate of trust and collaboration within the board and between the shareholders." Conti's resignation could be announced at a TIM board meeting scheduled for 26 September, with current CEO Luigi Gubitosi likely to take over the chairman's powers on an interim basis, according to sources.
