O2 strengthens management team in Asia with key appointments

BANGALORE: O2 today strengthens its Asia Pacific management team with the appointment of Guillaume Debrosse as COO and Sean Wilkins as CFO.

Both appointments underscore O2‘s commitment to delivering excellent customer service and operational efficiency as it expands into new markets, including some Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries in the Middle East, according to an official communication.

O2 Asia Pacific is a member of the O2 group, a leading provider of mobile communications services in Europe with more than 35 million active mobile customers.

Guillaume Debrosse is responsible for O2 Asia Pacific‘s entire regional operations, from project management, delivery and testing to supply chain management and after-sales support services. Debrosse‘s key focus is to ensure prompt time-to-market for O2‘s converged mobile devices and excellent service experience for O2‘s customers.

Prior to this role, Debrosse was the CFO at O2 Asia Pacific, a role he assumed since the de-merger from BT plc. He was instrumental in successfully turning O2 Asia Pacific into a profitable and cash flow positive business with a six-time revenue increase and an EBITDA multiplied by 15 over the last 3 years.

Sean Wilkins succeeds Debrosse as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for O2 Asia Pacific. In his capacity as CFO, Wilkins oversees all O2‘s financial and legal operations in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East markets.

Sean Wilkins joins O2 Asia Pacific from O2 UK where he was head of finance and business development for wholesale. Wilkins has made significant contribution to O2‘s partnership with Tesco Mobile and successfully developed a completely new and vital business sector and helped achieve the million-customers mark within a span of two years.

Both Debrosse and Wilkins are based in Singapore and report directly to Mark Billington, CEO, O2 Asia Pacific, the release adds.
