Swantee named CEO of Swiss operator Sunrise
Former EE boss Olaf Swantee has been named as the CEO of Swiss mobile operator Sunrise.
Swantee will take over the reins at Sunrise on May 9, four months after he stepped down from his top role at EE. His departure followed BT’s £12.6bn takeover of the UK largest mobile network, which gained regulatory approval at the start of the year. He was replaced by the network’s former CCO Marc Allera.
Speaking of his departure at the time Olaf Swantee, said: ‘As we approach the imminent completion of the deal with BT and the start of an exciting new chapter for EE, I’ve taken the enormously difficult decision to step down from my role as CEO, and pursue new opportunities.
‘I am immensely proud of the past four and a half years, creating, launching and growing EE to the exciting business it is today. It has been a period of great success, and I’d like to thank all of our employees for the incredibly hard work and support they have shown to me, as well as the business, to help achieve this.’
