Capacity - - Appointments -

Bangladeshi mo­bile op­er­a­tor Grameen­phone has ap­pointed Pet­ter-børre Furberg as in­terim CEO as it looks for a re­place­ment for Ra­jiv Sethi.

Sethi left the com­pany af­ter nearly two years to “pur­sue new op­por­tu­ni­ties”, leav­ing the top job free.

Furberg was most re­cently SVP of dig­i­tal busi­ness at Grameen­phone’s par­ent-com­pany, Te­lenor Group, whom he joined in 1998. He has held nu­mer­ous roles within the group, in­clud­ing head of fi­nan­cial ser­vices at Te­lenor Group, CMO and CFO of dtac and Te­lenor Myan­mar’s CEO.

The Grameen­phone board of di­rec­tors said it will now ini­ti­ate a process to iden­tify a per­ma­nent re­place­ment for the po­si­tion of CEO. Furberg will join Te­lenor’s ex­ec­u­tive man­age­ment team in the in­terim.
