TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) has appointed Henriette Wendt as head of group corporate development.

“I am very happy to announce Henriette Wendt as our new head of corporate development,” said Johan Dennelind, president and CEO at TeliaSonera.
“Her experience from senior positions in the field of strategy and business development at Swisscom and Motorola in the past 10 years will be very valuable for TeliaSonera going forward.”

The company has also appointed Ingrid Stenmark as head of the CEO office, which is responsible for TeliaSonera’s shareholdings in associate companies MegaFon and Turkcell.

The appointments come after a series of exits from the company following reports that TeliaSonera may have been involved in criminal activity in Turkey.

Last month, TeliaSonera officially appointed Christian Luiga, who had been acting CFO at the company since December 2013, to the permanent position.
