Telenor Group has announced two new senior appointments only weeks after three new CEOs were appointed to its various Asia-based subsidiaries.

Telenor Myanmar will now be headed by Jon Omund Revhaug in the role of CEO, effective 1 April, following his departure from Telenor Procurement Company (TPC), which he helped establish.

Thomas Skjelbred will now lead TCP as CEO, also effective 1 April.

“I am pleased that Jon Omund Revhaug has accepted the challenge to lead our operations in Myanmar. His extensive experience from our industry, including several positions in Telenor, makes him the right candidate to lead Telenor Myanmar going forward. Jon has for the last three years been heading TPC successfully, and we look forward to welcome him to the Myanmar team”, said Irfan Wahab Khan, EVP emerging Asia cluster in Telenor Group, and chair of the board at Telenor Myanmar.

Revhaug joined Telenor as a project manager for Telenor ASA in 2000 and specialises in “new business, strategic sourcing processes, and business development and implementation for global organisations”. He has served as CEO of Telenor Procurement since February 2017.

Commenting on Skjelbred’s appointment, Ruza Sabanovic, EVP and CTO in Telenor Group, and chair of the board at TPC said: “We are very glad that Thomas Skjelbred will take the position as CEO in Telenor Procurement Company. His broad industry knowledge and management experience, together with his in-depth knowledge of Telenor’s operations both in the Nordics and Asia, will bring valuable additional strength to the TPC team.”

As CEO of Telenor Myanmar, Revhaug replaced Sharad Mehrotra, who took the helm as CEO of Telenor’s Thai subsidiary dtac, on 1 February. Mehrotra’s appointment was confirmed alongside those of Hans Martin Hoegh Henrichsen who was named CEO of Telenor Myanmar and Yasir Azman who was named CEO of Grameenphone.
