Vorstersmans, whose departure follows that of long-serving Telenet CEO Duco Sickhinghe in March, plans to use his experience to assist young entrepreneurs in their start-up phase via his own company.
His responsibilities at Telenet will be divided up between two people. Veenod Kurup will head the information technology department. A US national, he previously worked for consultancy Gandeeva and also held various posts with Cox Communications.
Geert Van Hove, currently Telenet’s chief information officer, will now serve as vice-president, business transformation at Liberty Global International corporate.
Telenet is also planning to recruit a new chief technology officer, and Kurup and the new CTO will become members of the company’s executive team.
“Despite the fact that we only met quite recently, I know that Jan has made a major contribution to the success of Telenet as its COO and as head of the networks and IT organisation. He has demonstrated his multi-faceted expertise and skills in our industry. We are very pleased with his contribution to Telenet during the past years. His decision to assist young entrepreneurs in their start-up phase via his own company will certainly be well received. We thank Jan for the great cooperation during recent years and wish him a lot of success with his new challenge,” said Telenet CEO John Porter.
