New Deutsche Telekom ICSS SVP assumes role

03 September 2015 |


Mardia van der Walt-Korsten took her new role as SVP Deutsche Telekom ICSS this week.

Joining Deutsche Telekom in 1998, van der Walt-Korsten has held several positions at TSystems South Africa, including CEO.

At the start of 2015 she moved to Europe to oversee the post-merger integration of GTS Central Europe.

She replaces Martin Schlieker, who served as interim SVP following the departure of Holger Magnussen in May 2015. Schlieker, now SVP of global network factory, will remain in a supporting role to ensure continuity during the transition period.

“International wholesale is a very dynamic business and it’s wonderful to be entering this role during such challenging times. I am very excited to be working with my team in this industry environment to help prepare and position Deutsche Telekom’s ICSS for the future,” said Mardia van der Walt-Korsten.
