Deutsche Telekom has named two new board members, with Dirk Wössner replacing Niek Jan van Damme as member for Germany and Adel Al-Saleh taking over from Reinhard Clemens as member responsible for corporate customer arm T-Systems.
Wössner joins the board and takes over as managing director of Telekom Deutschland, the group’s domestic German arm, effective today. He was previously in charge of the consumer business at Canadian cable outfit Rogers. Prior to that he worked at Deutsche Telekom in a number of roles, including as director of sales for business and consumers in Germany.
Deutsche Telekom initially announced Wössner’s appointment back in July. At the time, Deutsche Telekom CEO Timotheus Höttges said that his experience with Rogers would be invaluable for the company and highlighted Rogers early lead in offering 4K television and 1Gbps broadband.
Al-Saleh becomes managing CEO of corporate customers outfit T-Systems. He was previously CEO of Northgate information Solutions.
Separately, Simone Thiäner has been named as director of human resources at Telekom Deutschland. She replaces Martin Seiler, who is moving to German railways organisation Deutsche Bahn.
