Funke was previously Unitymedia’s vice president of accounting and finance operations, a role he took in 2015. In his new position he becomes part of the executive board.

The news comes after Unitymedia’s parent company, Liberty Global, announced in May the sale of its national companies in Germany and three Eastern European countries to Vodafone.

“I am very pleased that the management entrusts me with this responsible task in this crucial transition phase,” said Funke.

“The holistic management of the finance department of a successful company like Unitymedia is an exciting task – and a great opportunity for development at the same time.”

Rapp said: “I congratulate Thomas cordially on this step and look forward to the trusting cooperation.”
