Alessandro Talotta has left Sparkle, where he had been chairman and CEO for more than three years, following his nomination as a director of rival Italian carrier Retelit.
The new CEO, appointed by the board
of Sparkle, is Riccardo Delleani, currently CEO of Olivetti but
a former CEO of Sparkle, Telecom Italia’s
international wholesale division. Olivetti, once a typewriter
and office equipment company, is now IT services division of
Telecom Italia, which now trades as TIM.
Retelit did not respond to a request from Capacity
for comment on the forthcoming shareholders’
meeting. The Fiber 4.0 group is understood to be talking to
other shareholders ahead of the 27 April meeting.
