Michael Jungwirth is the latest senior executive to leave Telekom Austria, it has been announced.

Jungwirth, who is Group Director of European & Regulatory Affairs and Director of Human Resources at the operator’s A1 subsidiary, has resigned and will leave the company by end of 2015.

Telekom Austria said the departure was by “mutual agreement”.

Jungwirth has held a variety of positions at the operator over the past nine years.

He becomes the fourth senior executive to depart under América Móvíl’s ownership this year.

The Latin-American telco became the Austrian company’s major shareholder in October 2014.

CTO Günther Ottendorfer left in March this year and was followed out the door by CEO Hannes Ametsreiter in June.

Group Director of Communications & Sustainability Peter Schiefer resigned in September.

Telekom Austria Group CEO Alejandro Plater said: “I thank Michael Jungwirth for his valuable performance and on behalf of the Management Board I wish him all the best for his further career.”

The current management board of TAG consists of just Plater, who also serves as COO, and CFO Siegfried Mayrhofer, according to the company’s website.

Ingrid Spörk was appointed to replace Schiefer last month, while Jesper Smith took over the role as Director Group of HR.

Adverse currency fluctuations hit the operator’s third quarter revenues while underlying earnings decreased 6.8 percent.

Last week, it signed up Alcatel-Lucent to supply a range of fixed-line broadband technologies in its home market.
