Vodafone UK CEO Jeroen Hoencamp is to take charge of the operator's joint venture with Liberty Global in the Netherlands.
Hoencamp, a Dutch citizen, has also been appointed CEO of Vodafone Netherlands and takes on both roles from 1 September.
His replacement is Nick Jeffery, the CEO of Vodafone Group Enterprise. A Vodafone veteran since 2004, Jeffrey was appointed CEO of Vodafone Global Enterprise in 2006 and headed Cable & Wireless Worldwide after it was bought by the operator in 2012.
Hoencamp was formerly CEO of Vodafone's Ireland arm before heading up the UK business in 2013. He will step down from the operator's group executive committee as part of the changes as he will report into an independent board once the joint venture is established.
Competition authorities are still scrutinising the JV between Vodafone Netherlands and Liberty Global's Ziggo, the largest cable television operator in the country.
Hoencamp will be joined by Ritchy Frost as Chief Financial Officer of the JV. He has held the same role at Ziggo since 2015 and spent almost 20 years at Liberty Global.
Ziggo CEO Baptiest Coopmans will remain in his role until the transaction is completed, when he will join the supervisory board of the JV as one of Liberty Global's appointed directors.
Vodafone Netherlands CFO Carmen Velthuis will also stay in her role until the merger has gone ahead. The operator said her new job will be appointed in due course.
Vodafone Group Chief Executive Vittorio Colao and Liberty Global Chief Executive Officer Mike Fries said: “Jeroen and Ritchy are experienced business leaders with extensive operational, strategic and merger integration experience.
"We are delighted they will be shaping our companies’ shared mission to create a strong and competitive integrated communications provider serving consumers, businesses and public sector customers in the Dutch market.”
Liberty Global Chief Executive Officer Mike Fries added: “I am particularly pleased that Baptiest Coopmans has agreed to join the joint venture supervisory board once the transaction is completed.
"He is an experienced leader and a trusted member of my executive team whose knowledge of the Dutch broadband and pay TV market will be invaluable.”
