Vodafone's head of commercial (terminals) set to leave
Vodafone’s head of commercial and marketing (terminals) Laurent Bouvier is set to leave the company.
Long-serving Bouvier has held a number of positions within the company, including head of commercial, head of purchasing, sales manager and national sales manager.
Vodafone confirmed Bouvier was leaving but declined to comment further.
A source said: 'Bouvier has chosen to leave to pursue his own venture but is also looking at offers from other companies. He is uniquely placed and has excellent relationships with senior figures within the industry.
'He was the person who negotiated with manufacturers on behalf of Vodafone on handset buying.
'He also helped to strengthen Vodafone's relationship with Samsung and Sony, as well as developing Vodafone's own brand handsets'.
