Telenor ASA announced top-level management changes at three of its subsidiaries in Asia.
The chief executive of Telenor Myanmar, Sharad Mehrotra, will become the new CEO of Thailand-based Total Access Communication PCL, or dtac. He replaces Alexandra Reich, who is leaving to pursue other opportunities.
Sigve Brekke, president and CEO of Telenor Group, said Mehrotra will add "valuable insights and knowledge to Thailand from Myanmar and India, where he has managed a strong commercial turnaround." In his 10 years at Telenor, Mehrotra held senior management positions across Asia, including chief executive of Telenor India.
Following Mehrotra's reassignment, Telenor Myanmar will now be led by Hans Martin Hoegh Henrichsen, currently chief corporate affairs officer, as the acting CEO.
In Bangladesh, deputy CEO and chief marketing officer of Grameenphone Ltd., Yasir Azman, has been appointed as the new CEO. He takes over from outgoing chief executive Michael Foley, who is relocating to Africa.
The Norwegian telecommunications company said the changes are effective Feb. 1.
