Telenor Names New Chief For Myanmar


Telenor Group appointed a new head at its mobile unit in Myanmar, two months after previous CEO Sharad Mehrotra was transferred to take over dtac, the company’s subsidiary in Thailand.

Currently chief of Telenor Procurement, Jon Omund Revhaug will become CEO of the Myanmar unit on 1 April. COO and deputy chief at the buying unit, Thomas Skjelbred will replace Revhaug.

Chief corporate affairs officer at Telenor Myanmar, Hans Martin Hoegh Henrichsen is the interim leader in Myanmar after Mehrotra replaced Alexandra Reich as head of dtac on 1 February.

Reich stepped down after less than two years in the role.

In a statement, EVP of Telenor’s Emerging Asia Cluster and chair at Telenor Myanmar, Irfan Wahab Khan said Revhaug had played an instrumental role in the development, growth and success of the procurement organisation since 2008.

“His extensive experience from our industry, including several positions in Telenor, makes him the right candidate to lead Telenor Myanmar going forward.”

The top-level management changes earlier in the year also saw the chief of Grameenphone in Bangladesh, Michael Foley, relocate to Africa and be replaced by deputy CEO and CMO Yasir Azman. -Mobile World Live
