Telecom Italia (TIM) has hired a Chief Commercial Officer as it continues to rejig its senior management team.

Pietro Scott Jovane takes up his new role next month, after agreeing to join the operator from e-commerce company ePrice where he has been CEO since October 2015.

The 49 year-old has previously served as CEO at Microsoft Italy and CEO at RCS Media Group.

At TIM, he has been charged with developing commercial strategy across consumer, enterprise and content, as well as heading up brand.

He has been specifically tasked with speeding up the operator’s convergence of content and distribution platforms, according to a statement.

Jovane’s appointment follows hot on the heels of two other senior appointments.

Riccardo Meloni has joined as Head of Human Resources and Organisational Development, with Stefano Siragusa taking on a new Chief TIM Infrastructures Officer role.
