Tower infrastructure operator Vantage Towers has completed its nomination of the remaining members of its supervisory board.

Made up of nine members, the supervisory board will be led by chairman Dr. Rüdiger Grube (pictured) to bring its experience of the tower sector and telecoms industry, strong operational and M&A experience to the business.

The first is Katja van Doren, who currently serves as Chief financial officer and chief human resources officer at RWE Generation SE. She is expected to take the role of the chair of the Vantage Towers Remuneration and Nomination Committee following her election.

Next is Charles C. Green III, a co-founder and previously the executive chairman of Helios Towers. With 23 years of towers experience and having led 20 tower M&A transactions in 14 countries on 4 continents, he is expected to take on the role of the chair of the Vantage Towers Audit and Risk Committee following his election.

Terry Rhodes was also nominated and is a co-founder and previously the CEO of Eaton Towers. With over 30 years of telecoms experience, earlier in his career Rhodes was a co-founder of Celtel, the African mobile telecoms company, where he served as Deputy CEO.


“I am delighted to be joined on the Supervisory Board for Vantage Towers by an outstanding team with extensive towers, telecoms and technical experience. We are building an entrepreneurial and independently-minded organisation, focused on enabling Europe's digital transformation,” said Grube.

“The formation of the Supervisory Board is a key milestone for Vantage Towers. Along with the Management Team, we look forward to helping guide Vantage Towers to capture the exciting structural growth opportunities ahead from mobile coverage obligations, 5G roll out and increasing end-user demand for data.”
