KPN on Thursday announced the appointment of Dominique Leroy as the next CEO and Chairman of the Board of Management of KPN, with effect from 1 December 2019. She succeeds Maximo Ibarra, who as previously announced resigned from his position effective 30 September 2019.

Dominique Leroy will join KPN from Proximus Group (formerly Belgacom), where she is currently CEO, a position she has successfully fulfilled since 2014. Leroy joined Belgacom, Belgian’s leading telecommunications company, in 2011 and was from 2012 onwards a member of the management committee with responsibility for the consumer business.

Prior to joining Proximus, she worked for 24 years at Unilever, ultimately as Managing Director of Unilever BeLux and member of the Unilever Benelux management committee. Mrs. Leroy has a degree in Business Engineering from the Solvay Business School and is fluent in Dutch, French and English.

Duco Sickinghe, Chairman of KPN's Supervisory Board
With her strong strategic, operational and communication skills, we are convinced that Dominique will be able to successfully execute on KPN’s strategy. At the end of last year KPN unveiled its 2019 – 2021 strategy, prioritising sustainable growth in the medium term.

Dominique Leroy, In-coming CEO, KPN
I am looking forward to working with them and the wider KPN team to execute on the existing strategy and help KPN to become a premier digital services and communication provider with the customer at its heart.
