28 November 2014 |


Telecom Italia is reportedly considering TI Sparkle CEO Elisabetta Ripa for the CEO post at Telecom Argentina.

According to Bloomberg, people with knowledge of the matter said she may replace Oscar Cicchetti as head of the Argentine unit.

Ripa was appointed CEO of Telecom Italia’s wholesale division in March 2013, having previously served as head of mobile consumer business unit TIM.

Under her guidance, TI Sparkle has pushed forward with its cloud strategy, launching scalable IaaS cloud solutions targeting SMEs and the corporate segment at large. The company collected two awards at this year’s Global Carrier Awards earlier this month.
