Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has hired François Fleutiaux from Fujitsu in a bid to boost the performance of its portfolio of IT products and services.

Fleutiaux, who has also worked for IBM and Unisys, starts his new role on 1 September.

At Fujitsu, he most recently served as the Japan-based company’s Head of Sales for Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa.

The Frenchman replaces Ferri Abolhassan who moved to the management board of Telekom Deutschland last October.

Director of Finance & Controlling Christoph Ahrendt has been leading T-System’s IT division on an interim basis since then.

Reinhard Clemens, CEO of T-Systems said: "I am delighted to have found in François Fleutiaux a new member of the management board who has a great wealth of experience in international business and who has worked in IT outsourcing for decades.

“More than half of our employees are based outside of Germany. So it's a good decision to make T-Systems' management team more international."

Fleutiaux takes over a unit with around 27,000 employees but joins a company that is struggling.

T-Systems saw sales fall 8.3 percent to €1.7 billion in the first three months of the year, while EBITDA was down 58.5 percent to €61 million.

The company noted it failed to close any big deals in the quarter, while two big contracts were renewed in Q1 2016.

Sales fell 3.5 percent to €7.9 billion in 2016, with IT revenues down 6.1 percent to €1.4 billion.
