New CEO for Orange Polska

The Orange Group has recommended to the board that company executive Bruno Duthoit take the CEO role at Orange Polska, after current boss Maciej Witucki said he is stepping down.

Duthoit, who has held several management positions in the Orange Group, including CEO of Orange Moldova and CEO of Orange Armenia, is due to replace Witucki, who is due to leave the role after almost seven years.

Orange said that it will at the same time propose Witucki as chairman of the supervisory board of Orange Polska, taking over from Professor Andrzej K. Kozminski, who has announced his intention to resign as chairman.

“We acknowledge and understand the decision of Maciej Witucki to step down, after serving nearly seven years as the Chief Executive Officer of Orange Polska. We will propose Bruno Duthoit as the new CEO in Poland as his broad international experience, as well as good knowledge of Poland and its telecom market, make him the best candidate to become Maciej’s successor,” said Benoit Scheen, Orange Group’s Executive Vice President for Operations in Europe (excluding France).
