Before Wind he spent eight years at Vodafone Greece, initially as head of strategy and then commercial operations director. Prior to Vodafone he worked for a number of organisations including McKinsey & Company, Teleperformance, Dell and General Motors.
Commenting on the appointment, United Group CEO Victoriya Boklag said: “I’m delighted to welcome Panayotis to United Group. He is a skilled leader with over two decades of experience. This includes an impressive track record in the telecommunications industry, specifically in areas such as strategy, sales, and customer operations – both in B2B and B2C.
“We want to bring value to Greek consumers and businesses, not only in terms of product and services, but also in terms of superior customer experience. The experience Panayotis has on the telecommunications market in Greece fits perfectly with our ambitions for Forthnet”.
Georgiopoulos takes over from Dimitrios Tzelepis, who as interim CEO has for the past several months been leading the business and the integration process into the group from the side of Forthnet. Tzelepis will return to his previous role as Forthnet’s CFO on April 1 and continue to play an important role in the company as part of Forthnet’s management team.
United Group entered the Greek market in 2020 with the acquisition of Forthnet.
