Adam Sawicki has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of T-Mobile Polska, reporting to Claudia Nemat, Board member for Europe and Technology at Deutsche Telekom. Sawicki is taking over from Zacharias Piperidis, who held this position on an interim basis in addition to his tasks as Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE)’s Group Chief Operating Officer since November 2014.
Adam who started his career in 1996 at Telia Swedtel, Stockholm, as a Consultant in the Business Development Department, is currently the President of the Management Board and Chief Executive Officer of Netia, the second-largest fixed-line network operator in Poland. He worked in a number of senior management positions in various companies of the Telia Group (later TeliaSonera), gaining international experience in the Scandinavian, British, Irish, Russian, Polish and other Central European telecommunications markets. He also brings with him experience in strategic transformation of operators, both in business (B2B) and residential (B2C) markets.
With Adam Sawicki at the helm of T-Mobile Polska, it is clear that we have the right man to tackle the Polish telecommunications market and industry. As a former CEO of GTS Central Europe and with his extensive international experience in the business and residential markets, he is a perfect strategic fit to help us ‘Lead in Business’ – a key element in our company’s strategy – and integrate the GTS operations we recently acquired. Already now I would like to thank Zacharias for his hard work as interim CEO of T-Mobile Polska. He shows true enthusiasm in mastering this task in a hard-fought market that has no shortage of challenges.
