Tele2 has appointed a new Director of Shared Operations, while VimpelCom subsidiary Djezzy has a new CEO.

Fredrik Stenberg, who has been acting COO since last August, is the new Director of Shared Operations at Sweden-based Tele2.

Stenberg assumes his position, which includes a seat on the operator’s Group leadership team, immediately.

He is charged with leading the operations that provide services to the entire Tele2 footprint.

Allison Kirkby, President and CEO of Tele2, said: “Fredrik has done a great job during his time as acting COO and I am both proud and excited to have made him a permanent member of our Group Leadership Team.

“Shared Operations was created in 2015 and is an essential part of the Tele2 operating model, enabling scale and skill to be leveraged across the Group.

“Fredrik’s track record in driving customer satisfaction and operational efficiency is exactly the experience we need to take the Shared Operations organisation to the next level.”

Meanwhile, Matthieu Galvani has been appointed as CEO of VimpelCom’s Algerian subsidiary Djezzy.

Frenchman Galvani has served as Chief Commercial Officer for VimpelCom’s emerging markets since April last year.

He returns to Djezzy having served as CCO from 2005 to 2009 and replaces Tom Gutjahr, who spent just six months in the CEO role.

Jon Eddy, Chairman of Global Telecom Holding and VimpelCom’s Head of Emerging Markets, said: “Matthieu has a deep knowledge of Algeria, the industry and the region and Djezzy will benefit significantly from his expertise as it continues with its transformation into a digital leader.”
