Fleutiaux enters the role with nearly 30 years' experience
in the industry, having started at IBM in 1989. From there he

T-Systems, said: "I am delighted to have found in
François Fleutiaux a new member of the management board
who has a great wealth of experience in international business

good decision to make T-Systems' management team more
