Guillaume van Gaver to leave Tele2 following the company’s international consolidation
Stockholm – As a consequence of Tele2 AB’s (“Tele2”) (Nasdaq Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2 B) international consolidation for a stronger focus on Sweden and the Baltics, Guillaume van Gaver, Executive Vice President International Markets, will leave Tele2 on 15 September 2019.
During the last twelve months, Tele2 has concentrated its footprint by a merger in the Netherlands, an exit of Kazakhstan and the announced divestment of its Croatian business. As a natural consequence of this progress, Guillaume van Gaver, Executive Vice President International Markets, will leave Tele2 on 15 September 2019 to pursue a continued international career outside of the company.
- Guillaume has done a fantastic job since he joined Tele2 in 2016, ensuring that our international markets have developed into impressive profitable businesses. We have now entered a new chapter of Tele2’s journey, focusing on our core markets, and Guillaume has concluded the tasks he set out to complete when he joined the company. I want to thank Guillaume for his commitment and leadership, and wish him the best of luck in his upcoming endeavors, says Anders Nilsson, President and CEO, Tele2.
- I have had a great time at Tele2, with experiences from a number of countries and colleagues to remember. Together we succeeded in challenging markets like Kazakhstan and built strong foundations for future growth in the Baltics. I wish my colleagues all the best for the future, says Guillaume van Gaver, Executive Vice President International Markets, Tele2.
Following Guillaume’s departure, Petras Masiulis, CEO Baltics, will assume the overarching responsibility for Tele2’s businesses in the Baltics and Germany, while Greg Lensch will continue as CEO for Tele2 IoT. Both will report directly to Anders Nilsson, but not as part of the group’s Leadership Team.
