Telecom Italia (TIM) has hired a Chief Commercial Officer as it continues to rejig its senior management team.
Pietro Scott Jovane takes up his new role next month, after agreeing to join the operator from e-commerce company ePrice where he has been CEO since October 2015.
The 49 year-old has previously served as CEO at Microsoft Italy and CEO at RCS Media Group.
At TIM, he has been charged with developing commercial strategy across consumer, enterprise and content, as well as heading up brand.
He has been specifically tasked with speeding up the operator’s convergence of content and distribution platforms, according to a statement.
Jovane’s appointment follows hot on the heels of two other senior appointments.
Riccardo Meloni has joined as Head of Human Resources and Organisational Development, with Stefano Siragusa taking on a new Chief TIM Infrastructures Officer role.
The revamped senior management team follows the unveiling of a new three-year strategic plan earlier this month.
Meanwhile, BT announced it had hired Hila Meller as its new Vice President for Security in Europe.
Meller joins BT from IT services and solutions company DXC Technology, where she held several regional leadership positions in its security business unit.
She replaces Luke Beeson, who has left the UK-based operator.
BT Security CEO Mark Hughes said: “[Hila’s] extensive know how and more than 20 years of experience in the security and cyber business, combined with her strong relationships with customers, partners and analysts, will ensure security is at the heart of our growth strategy in Europe.”
