Telekom Austria’s Head of Communications has quit after just eight months in the job.
Ingrid Spörk joined last November, following a slew of senior management changes at the operator last year.
The CEO, CTO, Group Director of European & Regulatory Affairs, and Director of Human Resources, who was Spörk’s predecessor, all left following América Móvíl’s takeover of Telekom Austria.
No reason was given for Spörk’s departure.
Telekom Austria Group Alejandro Plater CEO said: “Ingrid Spörk has shown enormous dedication to our company and enriched it with many new ideas and projects.
“I would like to thank her for her outstanding work and commitment and the tremendous support she gave us during the transformation process last year.”
She will be replaced by Barbara Grohs on an interim basis from next month.
Grohs, the former Director of Comms & PR at the Austrian Pharmaceutical Industry Association, will participate in the search for a permanent replacement.
Plater said: “I am delighted about the smooth transition and the additional support we will have thanks to the interim appointment.
“In recent months we have been seeking to implement a great many changes and we have mastered these challenges successfully.
“After Ingrid Spörk informed me of her wish to leave the company, we launched an executive search process to find a long-term successor and Barbara Grohs will now participate in this.”
Last month, the operator appointed Elisabetta Castiglioni to build a new enterprise-focused digital business unit.
Telekom Austria saw group sales rise 3.5 percent on an underlying basis in the first quarter, but earnings and profits fell.
