Former Kabel BW and HanseNet CEO Harald Rösch has been named as the new CEO of Melita Cable.
Rösch takes over from Andrei Torriani, who is stepping down after seven years, following the completion of the company’s acquisition by Apax France and Fortino Capital.
More recently Rösch has been CEO of Blizoo Media and Broadband EAD, Bulgaria’s largest operator and a board member of Sky Deutschland.
“I am very much looking forward to drive Melita into its next development cycle, building on the strong foundations that were put in place by Andrei and his team. Melita is a great company with a bright future and very talented employees dedicated to provide the best possible experience to our customers,” said Rösch. “Digital, broadband and customer experience will undoubtedly spearhead our growth strategy for the coming years to strengthen Melita’s position as the leader in broadband and communication services for the Maltese Islands.”
Torriani has been responsible for a shift from just pay-TV towards a fully integrated service.
“I am very proud of what we achieved together over the last 7 years, setting Melita on course for future growth through the successful adoption of convergence and achieving European wide recognition for propelling Malta to the top position of next generation broadband coverage charts. Melita is well positioned to continue reaping the fruits of its investments and to offer more value to its customers,” he said.
In the immediate future Torriani plans to spend more time with his family.
