Telecom Italia Wants More Innovation with New Management Structure
Telecom Italia will make changes in organisational structure in an effort to boost innovation. The operator established a Chief Innovation and Partnership Office which will be run by the company's CTO Elisabetta Romano.
New unit will focus on innovation and “maximising the value of partnerships and alliances with major Italian and international players”. The Chief Technology and Innovation Office is renamed the Chief Technology and Information Office, which is headed up by network and service engineering boss Michele Gamberini. This move aims “to improve monitoring of network development and information technology”, the company said in a statement.
Telecom Italia’s Chief Wholesale Infrastructures Network and Systems Office is also changing. From now on it will work as the Chief Operations Office. The company said the shift will boost efforts around “progressive recovery of operating efficiency”. Chief regulatory affairs officer Giovanni Moglia takes on the additional function of overseeing the wholesale market, to “ensure the continuity of Telecom Italia’s results achieved in the recent years with the implementation of the New Equivalence Model”.
These changes in organisational structure come less than a month after Telecom Italia appointed Salvatore Rossi as its new chairman. The company recently announced a finance joint venture with banking group Santander, and a partnership with Google Cloud, aiming to boost its role in Italy’s cloud and edge computing market.
