TeliaSonera is to merge its commercial and technology teams, while a new steering committee will oversee its exit from Eurasia.
The Scandinavia-based operator’s President and CEO Johan Dennelind said it was combining the commercial and tech teams to bring operations closer to the customers, ensure faster time to market and speed up its transformation projects.
The reshuffle comes three months after the departure of Group CTO Sverker Hannervall.
That triggered the creation of a new Technology and Transformation department, headed by Malin Frenning.
CCO Hélène Barnekow took up Frenning’s former role as head of TeliaSonera Sweden.
However, Frenning is now leaving the company altogether after 20 years of service.
A search for the head of the new combined unit, which is slated to come into being on 1January 2016, is underway.
Meanwhile, a Steering Board with overall strategic responsibility for Eurasia has been created and will be headed by Dennelind.
Emil Nilsson will replace Erik Hallberg as Head of Eurasia as part of the reshuffle.
Earlier this month, the operator announced plans to exit Eurasia and refocus on its core European markets.
That announcement came a week after the European Commission resisted the proposed merger of the Danish operations of Telenor and TeliaSonera.
Dennelind said: “Going forward, Group Executive Management will focus on the New Generation Telco agenda and our home markets in Regions Europe and Sweden.
“That’s why we need a separate governance structure. The Steering Board approach is to ensure continued alignment within the Group.”
TeliaSonera saw group sales rise 8.5 percent in its most recent financial results thanks to positive currency movements.
