Tony O’Sullivan has been promoted to CEO of RETN, taking over from Dmitry Samarin, one of the company's founders.

In almost 14 years with the company, O’Sullivan (pictured) has held numerous roles including that of managing director of the UK operations, which saw him establish RETN’s market presence in Western Europe, and COO, a role that led to the expansion of operations in Asia and Asia-Pacific.

Commenting on his promotion, O’Sullivan said: “Having spent the best part of my working life at RETN, I am honoured to be provided with the opportunity to lead RETN onto the next phase of its development and I am truly grateful to lead a team comprised of such exceptional individuals.

"RETN has made its name providing industry leading international services into some of the world’s more complicated and unique markets. We are ready to take our unique network to the next level, establishing it as the network platform of choice for the Eurasian market, further cementing our established brand reputation for flexibility, service delivery and support. Exciting times are ahead!”

Samarin will chair the board of directors, with a focus on shareholder relations and strategy.

Handing over the reins, Samarin said: "After 18 years at the helm of RETN I felt this is the right time to hand over control and let the company evolve, powered by a new dynamic.

"Tony’s profound understanding of RETN’s soul and potential, his knowledge of the industry and trends, combined with inexhaustible source of energy and determination, makes him an ideal leader to build on the company’s achievements. I have full confidence he will lead the company towards great success and continued stable growth," Samarin continued.
