BT Global Services has appointed Jennifer Artley as President of its operations in North and South America.
Artley has served as COO of the BT Americas division, which also serves businesses in the Caribbean, since August 2014.
She starts her new role immediately and replaces Bas Berger, who was promoted to CEO of the entire Global Services division earlier this month.
Burger said: “The Americas hold a significant opportunity to support BT’s growth ambitions as a leading global business communications provider.
“I am fully confident that Jennifer will continue to grow and transform our business to best meet the needs of our customers.
“She brings a wealth of experience to this key leadership position, which will help us accelerate our global digital strategy.”
Burger is in charge of restoring faith in Global Services, which is still rocking from an accounting scandal at its Italian division.
It announced a two-year restructuring project last month in a bid to create a "simpler and leaner" operating model.
Artley, who has previously worked at Equinix, Level 3 and a host of management consultancies, said: “I am honoured and thrilled to take this important leadership role within BT and to drive the digital transformation journeys of our customers.
“The Americas are a very promising market, with more than 70 percent of our global customers having a presence in the region. I’m also looking forward to continuing our own transformation to become a more digital business.”
