Grameenphone Appoints Uninor’s Vivek Sood As CEO

Grameenphone, a telecom operator in Bangladesh, has appointed Vivek Sood as its Chief Executive Officer, reports bdnews24. Sood would be succeeding former CEO Tore Johnsen and will take charge from January 7, 2013.  Johnsen will now serve as the Senior Vice President of the Telenor Group’s Asia region in Bangkok.

Previously, Sood was the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) with Indian mobile operator Uninor. He has also served at Tata AIG life Insurance, Hutchison Telecom, Tupperware India and Hindustan Lever Limited (Unilever).

It’s worth noting that the Telenor group, the Norwegian telecom company, holds investment in both, Uninor and Grameenphone. Telenor holds a 55.8% stake in Grameenphone. However, following the Supreme Court’s verdict in the 2G Scam case,  Uninor’s licenses were cancelled. But, Telenor was able to win spectrum in 6 circles during the recently conducted fresh 2G auctions through a new entity, Telewings. Another interesting point to note is that Indian telecom major, Airtel, also operates in Bangladesh.
