Telecom Italia (TIM) has announced the appointment of Amos Genish as the new CEO of the company, just two months after being named general manager for operations.
Genish brings with him extensive experience in both the United States and Brazil, where he co-founded GVT, making it the principal ultrabroadband company in Brazil in just a few years.
Until the end of 2016, Genish was the CEO of Telefonica Brasil/Vivo, the principal integrated telecommunications operator in the country with over 90 million customers and an offer that includes fixed and mobile telephony, services and entertainment.
From January to July 2017, he held the position of Chief Convergence Officer at Vivendi, with the responsibility for developing the Group’s strategy for the convergence of content, platforms and distribution.
