Tele2’s executive VP international markets Guillaume van Gaver will leave the company on September 15.
According to Tele2, his departure will be as a consequence of its international consolidation for a stronger focus on Sweden and the Baltics. Gaver will leave to pursue a continued international career outside of the company.
Commenting on the departure, Anders Nilsson, president and CEO, Tele2, said: “Guillaume has done a fantastic job since he joined Tele2 in 2016, ensuring that our international markets have developed into impressive profitable businesses. We have now entered a new chapter of Tele2’s journey, focusing on our core markets, and Guillaume has concluded the tasks he set out to complete when he joined the company. I want to thank Guillaume for his commitment and leadership, and wish him the best of luck in his upcoming endeavours”.
Van Gaver added: “ I have had a great time at Tele2, with experiences from a number of countries and colleagues to remember. Together we succeeded in challenging markets like Kazakhstan and built strong foundations for future growth in the Baltics. I wish my colleagues all the best for the future”.
Following van Gaver’s departure, Petras Masiulis, CEO Baltics, will assume the responsibility for Tele2’s businesses in the Baltics and Germany, while Greg Lensch will continue as CEO for Tele2 IoT. Both will report directly to Anders Nilsson, but not as part of the group’s leadership team.
