UPC Poland CEO resigns

UPC Poland CEO Ramiro Lafarga Brollo is to leave his post to take on a role outside Liberty Global, the Polish cable operator’s owner.

Liberty Global did not provide further information on the reasons for Lafarga Brollo’s move, or on who would replace him.

The company said that Lafarga Brollo had significantly contributed to the development of UPC Poland, including the launch of the Horizon advanced TV platform, since he took on his role in July 2014.

Lafarga Brollo said that he was happy to report that after a year and a half in his post the operator had reinforced its position and had maintained its leading position in infrastructure, product innovation, its competitive offering and high quality customer service.

Lafarga Brollo was previously CEO of O2 Slovakia.

His move is the latest in a series of senior management changes at Liberty Global’s central and eastern European operations. In June, the company named UPC Romania and Hungary CEO Severina Pascu as head of the entire CEE region, replacing Betzalel Kenigstein. She was replaced as Romanian chief executive by CMO Robert Redeleanu.

UPC Poland named former Orange Poland executive Tomasz Izydorczyk as marketing director and Zoltan Bodnar as finance director in September.
