Uninor makes leadership changes in telecom circles

NEW DELHI: Uninor has made leadership changes in its three circles – east, west and south. Additionally, the telecom company has also appointed a circle business head (CBH) for Assam.

Uttar Pradesh (West) CBH KC Narendran will take over as UP (East) CBH, whereas Satish Kumar Kannan will move to UP (West) as its CBH.

Shrinath Kotian, the current sales and distribution head of Maharashtra and Goa circles, will replace Kannan as the circle business head of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Uninor has also appointed Anil Kumar as the Assam CBH, where its service will be commercially launched later this year.

All changes are effective 1 June this year.

“The current organisational changes are example of how Uninor believes in growing and developing its own people to take newer challenges. I am confident that they will do their best to further grow our business in their respective circles. I wish all of them a great success and request all of us to provide necessary support in making Uninor successful,” said Telewings Communications Services (Uninor) CEO Vivek Sood.

Narendran joined Uninor in 2008, and has served as CMO and head of sales & distribution in UP (W) before taking the helm. He has 23 years of experience in the telecom industry and will be now responsible for UP (East), the largest circle for Uninor. Kannan will take over UP (West) from Narendran.

Kannan, the current CBH for Andhra Pradesh, has been responsible for growing Uninor business to over 5.5 million subscribers in the circle. He had earlier served as the head of marketing AP. He joined Uninor in 2009 from Vodafone India.

The new Assam CBH Anil Kumar has over 18 years of experience in handling distribution, retail channels and cluster strategy. Before being elevated as Assam circle head, Kumar was the sales and distribution head of Maharashtra and Goa circle.

Kotian joined Uninor in 2009. He moved to M&G as sales head in October 2014 from Gujarat where he was the marketing head of circle.
