Magyar Telekom has decided to streamline its organisational structure surrounded the services it provides to SMEs, effective November 1.
SoHo (small business) customers will be managed within the Consumer segment and medium-sized businesses within T-Systems.
As a direct result, the SMB area and CCO SMB position will cease to exist and Péter Lakatos, CCO SMB shall leave the company on November 1. In accordance, the size of the management committee will be reduced from eight members to seven.
Magyar Telekom has provided telecommunication and IT services to more than 200,000 business customers, ranging from micro to small to medium-sized, since the beginning of 2013. This has been undertaken through a single dedicated management function including the respective marketing, sales and customer service areas.
Now, Magyar Telekom’s management believes that through merging the Consumer and SoHo segments, it will be better able to capitalise on the synergies available in terms of serving those customers.
Commenting on the change, CEO Christopher Mattheisen said: “I would like to say thank you to Péter Lakatos for the close to five years he has spent with us and for having strengthened our presence in Hungary’s diverse SMB market! It is in a new operational framework, but with the same focus that we continue to exploit the opportunities in the SMB sector and to educate our customers”.
