TeliaSonera improves service to media and stakeholders

TeliaSonera strengthens its focus on relations with media, authorities and politicians by creating two new units - Media Relations, who manages the groups all communication with media, and Public Affairs, where all communication with politicians and authorities is focused.

Thomas Westlind, previous head of External Communication, will be responsible for the whole group’s initiatives towards Public Affairs. Gunnar Forsgren will continue focusing on the public affairs issues in Brussels. Ola Kallemur, who today is head of TeliaSonera's long-term Public Relations, will also have the responsibility for the group's relations with the media.

The new units are up and running from April 1, 2007.
