T-Mobile Polska has appointed Adam Sawicki as its new CEO as it looks to target the enterprise market.

Sawicki joins from Netia, the second-largest fixed-line network operator in Poland, where he was President of the Management Board and CEO.

However, it is his experience as a former exec at GTS Central Europe, which Deutshce Telekom acquired in November 2013, which caught the attention of the German operator.

GTS was bought in order to add landline and data centre infrastructure to DT’s wireless subsidiaries in countries such as Poland.

Sawicki, who starts his new role on 1 June, will report directly to Claudia Nemat, Board member for Europe and Technology at Deutsche Telekom.

Nemat said: “With Adam Sawicki at the helm of T-Mobile Polska, it is clear that we have the right man to tackle the Polish telecommunications market and industry.

“As a former CEO of GTS Central Europe and with his extensive international experience in the business and residential markets, he is a perfect strategic fit to help us ‘Lead in Business’ - a key element in our company’s strategy - and integrate the GTS operations we recently acquired.”

T-Mobile Polska saw revenues fall 5.8 percent last year to €1.5 billion as voice and SMS use fell.

Sawicki replaces Zacharias Piperidis, the COO of DT’s Greek subsidiary OTE who has held the position on an interim basis since November last year.

Nemat said: “I would like to thank Zacharias for his hard work as interim CEO of T-Mobile Polska. He shows true enthusiasm in mastering this task in a hard-fought market that has no shortage of challenges.”
