Robert Redeleanu will become the CEO of UPC Polska on April 1. Hitherto the CEO of UPC in Hungary and Romania, he will replace Frans-Willem de Kloet, who will leave the company at the end of this month.
Redeleanu has extensive experience in international FMCG and telecom companies, having held several key positions in sales and marketing. He joined Liberty Global in 2013, initially as CEO of UPC Romania and then also becoming head of UPC Hungary in 2016.
Commenting on his appointment, Severina Pascu, CEO Liberty Global CEE, said: “I am glad that we were able to appoint Robert Redeleanu as the leader of UPC Poland, our largest company in Central and Eastern Europe, and I am convinced that his achievements in Liberty Global will contribute to the further development of UPC Polska and, consequently, Liberty Global in the entire CEE region. At the same time, I would like to thank Frans-Willem for contributing to the development and strengthening of UPC’s market position, building solid foundations for further growth, and wish him good luck in the future”.
Broadband TV News notes that the change at UPC Polska comes at a critical time for what is Poland’s largest cable operator. It is expecting a final decision from the competition authority (UOKiK) on its proposed take-over of Multimedia Polska, the country’s third largest operator, by the end of March.
