Telia Co. AB's board appointed Allison Kirkby the company's president and CEO, effective during the second quarter of 2020.
The appointment of Kirkby, who most recently was TDC A/S' CEO and president, comes after Johan Dennelind stepped down as Telia's president and CEO.
Christian Luiga will remain as acting president and CEO. Luiga, who served in the interim role since Sept. 12, will return as executive vice president and CFO when Kirkby assumes the CEO role.
Telia also recently nominated Lars-Johan Jarnheimer as its next chairman, following the Swedish government's request for a change of board leadership.
