Vodafone names regional chiefs

UK-based operator Vodafone continued its management reorganisation on Monday, establishing greater focus on the group’s higher growth markets.

Nick Read, currently CEO of Vodafone UK, will become CEO of the Asia-Pacific & Middle East region, which includes Vodafone’s interests in Australia, China, Egypt, Fiji, India, New Zealand and Qatar.

Morten Lundal, currently CEO of the Middle East & Africa region, takes over the Central Europe & Africa region, which will comprise Vodafone’s interests in the Czech Republic, Ghana, Hungary, Kenya, Poland, Romania, Turkey and Vodacom Group in South Africa.

Both Read and Lundal will report to Vodafone head honcho, Vittorio Colao.

Guy Laurence, currently CEO of Vodafone Netherlands, will take over from Read as CEO of Vodafone UK. He will report to Michel Combes, CEO of the Europe Region.

This latest move follows an earlier reshuffling of the Big V’s top brass at the start of this month, which saw Combes join Vodafone from French operation TDF, where he was chairman and CEO.
