Jon and I have worked together for many years and he has contributed greatly to both the success of Com Hem and Tele2 in his two most recent positions. I want to thank Jon for his leadership and engagement, and I wish him the best of luck in whatever challenges he will take on in the future,” said Anders Nilsson, President and CEO, Tele2.
