Tele2 combines fixed and mobile tech under Thomas Helbo

Following its merger with cable operator Com Hem, Tele2 has combined its fixed and mobile technology units into a single organisation under CTO Thomas Helbo.

Helbo, current EVP of fixed technology, and former CTO at Com Hem, will lead the combined organisation. The change means that Thomas Björklund, currently Executive Vice President Technology Mobile, will leave Tele2 in the end of June.

The changes will take effect on April 1.

“Thomas Björklund is a highly appreciated leader, a true role model and a strong ambassador of Tele2’s culture and values. He remains a part of the Tele2 family and is welcome back to the company at any given time. I would like to personally thank Thomas for the strong legacy he leaves behind, and I wish him all the best going forward,” said Anders Nilsson, president and CEO, Tele2.

“I have had a fantastic time at Tele2 and it is with great pride that I look back at everything that the Mobile Technology team has accomplished over the past 22 years. Tele2 is today operating one of the world’s most high performing and cost-efficient mobile networks. I will miss all the talented colleagues and friends that I have worked with to achieve those goals. Lastly, I wish Thomas Helbo the best of luck in running the combined organization going forward,” said Björklund.
