Cellnex Telecon has named Anne Bouverot non-executive chair of the company, succeeding Bertrand Kan.

Kan steps down from the role after two years, while maintaining his status as an independent director. Bouverot has been an independent director of Cellnex since May 2018 and is a member of the Audit and Risk Management Committee (ARMC).

Bouverot built her career at the forefront of technology and innovation, in France and globally. She held various operational and strategic positions during 19 years at Orange, in the USA, UK and France. She served as director general of the GSMA, the global association for mobile industry where she was in charge of organising the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. She then became CEO of the leading provider of security and identity services, Morpho.

“Since its IPO in 2015, Cellnex has grown to become Europe’s leading independent operator of telecommunications infrastructures,” said Bouverot. “As announced last November, the company is at the beginning of a new chapter, focussed on organic growth and strengthening of its balance sheet. The Board of Directors is fully supportive of this strategy and agrees that finding the right successor for Tobias Martinez, who has announced he is stepping down as CEO in June, is a key priority. On behalf of the whole Board, I want to thank Bertrand Kan for his work and dedication leading the Board for the past two years. I look forward to working with all my colleagues on the Board as I assume this new responsibility as Chairperson”.
