Robert Andersson, Senior Vice President and Head of Corporate Holdings, will be leaving Telia Company.
“I’m very grateful for the dedicated work that Robert has done for Telia Company. His broad international experience from the telecommunications industry has proven itself invaluable for me and the company on our journey towards becoming a New Generation Telco. I wish him all the best in Finland where he now resides and is ready for new challenges,” says Johan Dennelind, President and CEO of Telia Company.
Robert Andersson joined Telia Company and the Group Executive Management in 2012 when he was appointed CEO of Sonera, Telia’s Finnish operations. In 2013, Robert Andersson was appointed Head of Region Europe which included all Nordic and Baltic operations outside of Sweden, as well as Yoigo in Spain. Under his leadership Telia Company consolidated and expanded its operations in Estonia, Lithuania and Norway and gained strong market positions.
In December 2016, Robert Andersson was appointed Head of Corporate Holdings – a new unit which managed Telia Company’s significant shareholding at the time in Turkcell and Megafon (today only an indirect stake in Turkcell), Telia Company’s Latvian operations and Telia Carrier – a global leading internet backbone provider.
“I have really enjoyed the time at Telia Company where I have had the pleasure of working with great people in different parts of the organization and countries. I believe that Telia Company is well prepared to face the fast changing nature of our industry and I am proud to be able to say that I have contributed to laying the strong foundation that the company rests on today.”
Robert Andersson, who will not be replaced, will stay with Telia Company for a period of time to ensure a proper hand over of his responsibilities to current members of the Group Executive Management Team.
