Vodafone's group chief operations and strategy officer leaves for new role
Written by: Laurence Doe | Published:

Vodafone has announced that Paolo Bertoluzzo, its group chief commercial operations and strategy officer, has informed the company of his intention to take up a new role in Italy.

Bertoluzzo will be leaving Vodafone on 8 July 2016 to become Group CEO of ICBPI, a leading financial and payment services company and the largest private equity investment in Italy. Vodafone will be announcing Paolo’s successor “in due course”, it said in a statement. Bertoluzzo joined Vodafone Italy in 1999 as Strategy and Business Development Director.

Since then he has held various senior positions before becoming CEO of Vodafone Italy in 2008. Bertoluzzo joined Vodafone’s Executive Committee in 2012 as Regional CEO for Southern Europe. In 2013 he was appointed to his current position and Bertoluzzo has played a central role in the definition of the Group’s strategy and the design and direction of Vodafone’s group-wide commercial plans since then.

“Paolo has been an outstanding colleague who has made an immense contribution during his time in Italy and on our Executive Committee,” said Vittorio Colao, Vodafone group chief executive. “I would like to thank him for his dedication, friendship and wise advice. I wish him every success in his new role, which I know he will undertake with the devotion and commitment that drove so many valuable and effective initiatives during his 17 years with Vodafone.”
