Swisscom has appointed Christian Petit as the head of its Enterprise Customers (Corportate Business) division.
Petit, who will also become a member of the Group Executive Board, replaces Andreas Konig, who resigned from his position citing family reasons.
CEO Urs Schaeppi commented: “We deeply regret Andreas König's decision to leave us. Under his leadership, Swisscom IT Services had its best year in the history of the company. We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his contribution.”
Petit, current Swisscom COO and head of the Enterprise Solution Center, takes over his new role on 1 April.
Schaeppi described Petit as “a very experienced and competent colleague”. The CEO went on: “[Petit] will put a strong focus on driving forward the convergence between IT and telecommunications and the digitalisation of the Swiss economy.”
The operator said that the change will not have any impact on the ongoing development of its Corporate Business strategy and that the merger of IT Services and Corporate Business is proceeding “according to plan”.
Swisscom merged its Corporate Business and Enterprise Customers divisions at the beginning of the year in order to drive convergence and single-source cloud-based solutions.
The news follows the February announcement that Swisscom is merging its Axept Webcall subsidiary with its Solution Centre Workspace & Collaboration.
Axept Webcall specialises in Unified Communication Collaboration solutions – ranging from consulting and projects to operation. The merger will legally take effect in January next year.
