Liberty Global’s central European satellite TV arm, UPC DTH, has named Catalin Itu as its new managing director.

Itu takes over from Michael Lee, who is leaving the company. Lee has served as chief executive of UPC DTH since 2013.

Itu, who is currently vice-president of sales and operations at UPC DTH, will take up his new post on October 1. He previously held positions in Orange Romania, Bosch Communications Romania and Astral Telecom.

“I am very happy we are able to appoint Catalin to this role, he has extensive experience in DTH business and am looking forward to have him lead the next phase of growth of our DTH business across the CEE region. I would like to thank Michael for his long-term leadership and contribution to the Group and to wish him all the best for the future,” said Severina Pascu, CEO of UPC Central & Eastern Europe.
