NTT DATA has appointed Alberto Bellofatto to head its relationship with Vodafone.

Bellofatto will now take on the role of vice president, global client partner for Vodafone, with special responsibility for NTT DATA UK’s relationship with the telco, working to ensure that the top 10 global IT services provider is a trusted global partner to the firm.

Roei Haberman, SVP of sales and head of TMT for NTT DATA UK, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Alberto to the TMT team. Alberto is the ideal candidate to ensure that Scott Petty, Alberto Ripepi and the Vodafone team receive world-class support and expertise from NTT DATA. Leveraging our global expertise, we are perfectly placed as Vodafone’s newly appointed global partner.”

Haberman himself joined NTT's TMT team in September.

Bellofatto has had a colourful career, having started in the military before stepping into telecoms. He has worked for Accenture, where he reached executive level, and Ericsson before launching his own consulting agency in April 2017. Most recently, Bellofatto worked for Silicon Valley start-up MATRIXX Software, leading their European markets.

He said: “I am excited to begin this new chapter with NTT DATA UK, whose passion and expertise drew me in. Couple this with NTT DATA’s global footprint and we are the ideal partner to help such a major player in the UK Telco market through their latest organisational changes.”

NTT DATA has been working as a global advisor to Vodafone for a number of years, with teams supporting their operations across key markets including the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany and beyond.
