Claro Brasil president to head up Colombian operations

21 March 2016 | Jason McGee-Abe

Carlos Zenteno, president of Claro Brasil, is to step down from his presidency to lead Claro Colombia’s operations, effective April 4, 2016.

Claro announced that Zenteno, who has been in his role since mid-2002, will take up the new challenge next month after it was announced Juan Carols Archila was to leave the Colombian operations to assume an international affairs leadership role at América Móvil.

Zenteno, who is credited with aiding the expansion of 3G and 4G coverage at the operator in Brazil, will assume similar responsibilities and will be in charge of fixed, mobile and business operations of Claro in Colombia.

The América Móvil-owned company has appointed Jose Antonio Felix, president of America Movil Brasil, to replace Zenteno’s position.
