Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems International GmbH has appointed a new chief commercial officer (CCO) effective from 1 January.

Urs M. Krämer (pictured) will take on the top sales position at the company as a member of the board of management, succeeding Francois Fleutiaux, who has resigned. Fleutiaux had been on the board since 2017 and is responsible for global sales and marketing.

"I am delighted that we have been able to appoint Urs Krämer to the top sales position at T-Systems," said Adel Al-Saleh, Deutsche Telekom board member and CEO of T-Systems.

"He knows all the facets of our business, both in Germany and internationally, and will continue the successful work of recent years with our team."

Krämer joins the business from European management and tech consultancy, Sopra Steria SE. There he was most recently the CEO of the Germany and Austria region – a position he held since 2014 – and in 2019 was appointed a member of the group executive board.

His professional career started in 1999 at Accenture in Munich. He has held various management positions at Horváth & Partners Management Consultants, APCOA Parking Group and the Limbach Group, the largest privately owned laboratory group in Germany.

T-systems noted that Krämer is also experienced in "restructuring and transformation"

"He will contribute this expertise and his industry knowledge in the areas of consulting, mobility, healthcare and financial services directly to the further strategic positioning of T-Systems," the company added.

With the second largest market share in the DACH region, T-Systems recently pivoted to focus on advisory, multi-cloud services, digital solutions and security

"We want to expand our leadership position in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and position ourselves particularly strong in our core markets, while we drive growth in our focus countries across the world," said Al-Saleh.

"With his experience, familiarity with local markets and focus on end-to-end solutions, Urs will vigorously develop our business together with our employees and our customers."
