TDC Group is due to establish two new business units in Denmark as the company, under new owner Macquarie, aims to pursue investments in Danish infrastructure and digitisation.
The new divisions, which are due to be established on August 1, will be: a unit focusing on network and digital infrastructure called NetCo; and a unit focusing on digital services and customer experiences called OpCo.
OpCo will include YouSee, TDC Business, Telmore, Fullrate and Blockbuster and will be led by Jaap Postma, who is currently senior executive vice president and head of YouSee.
NetCo will include TDC’s network, wholsale, procurement and logistics, Dansk Kabel TV and IT operations and will focus on further improving Danish infrastructure. It will be led by TDC’s senior executive vice president and head of operations Andreas Pfisterer.
At the same time Marina Lønning has decided to retire from her post as senior executive vice president of TDC Business and will be replaced by Michael Moyell Juul.
In Norway, TDC Group will continue to run Get and TDC Norway as independent units with no changes.
“In agreement with the new owners we intend to pursue investments in Danish infrastructure and digitisation. Hence, we are to take a large step forward by extending the fibre network, i.e. establishing 5G and thereby providing Denmark’s best mobile network for the future,” said TDC Group president and CEO, Pernille Erenbjerg,
“We are on track executing our new vision, and now time has come to make the necessary changes to the organisation and set the management team that can best drive this work forward.”
Last month it was announced that Erenbjerg is to leave TDC after a transitional period, with Tele2 chairman Mike Parton appointed as temporary chairman of the company.
Erenbjerg said that it was “the right time” to step down and start the process of handing the baton to another chief executive. As CEO, she was a driving force behind the company’s plan to acquire the broadcasting and streaming arm of Sweden’s MTG, a plan that was nixed when TDC accepted infrastructure investment firm Macquarie’s offer to buy the company earlier this year.
