Helmut Reisinger has formally taken over as CEO of Orange Business Services following the departure of Thierry Bonhomme.
The France-based operator revealed Bonhomme was retiring in March as part of a wider shake-up of its management committee.
Reisinger takes over Orange’s enterprise arm after being promoted from the role of Vice President, International, serving the telco’s customers outside of France. He first joined OBS in 2007.
The division saw sales decline one percent to €7.25 billion last year.
Reisinger said: "I am honored and excited to lead Orange Business Services on its ambition to be at the forefront of the data-driven economy.
“I believe our global talent, expertise and assets position us to deliver an unmatched experience for our enterprise customers worldwide.
“With a relentless customer focus – combined with people empowerment and commitment to innovation – I am confident that we will achieve continued success and growth for both our customers and Orange.”
Last month, OBS teamed up with Siemens to launch a new set of IoT tools for industrial companies and announced a cyber security collaboration with the New Zealand government.
