Telecom Italia's general counsel to leave in September

Telecom Italia’s general counsel and executive vice president of legal affairs will depart the group in September 2016.

Antonino Cusimano will take on a new role as group general counsel for another multinational company outside of Italy, according to the operator.

"We would like to extend to Nino our gratitude for his leadership, professional approach and good judgement in dealing with the group’s complex corporate and legal matters during his tenure. As of today Nino does not hold shares in the company," said the company.

Cusimano was confirmed as secretary to Telecom Italia’s board of directors on April 2014.
