VODAFONE ANNOUNCES EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE CHANGE

 

Vodafone announced today that Antonio Coimbra will step down from his current executive role as CEO of Vodafone Spain effective 1 November. On the same day, he will be appointed as Non-Executive Chairman of Vodafone Spain.

 

Antonio has been with Vodafone for 28 years including the last eight years as CEO of Spain. During a critical period for the Spanish telecommunications sector and under Antonio’s leadership, Vodafone Spain became a fully converged operator whilst driving market leading digital services. Prior to his role in Spain, Antonio was CEO of Vodafone Portugal and he has held various senior roles over his twenty year career with Vodafone Portugal.

 

On 1 November Colman Deegan will become the new CEO of Vodafone Spain and will join the Vodafone Group Executive Committee. He joined Vodafone in 1998 and has held senior roles in group Finance & M&A as well as CFO roles in Vodafone India and Vodafone Italy. In 2016 he became CEO of Vodafone Turkey driving the growth and transformation of the company through digitalization.

 

“I want to thank Antonio for his contribution to Vodafone over the last 28 years particularly in his country CEO roles and as a key member of the group executive team. I am also pleased that he will continue as Non-Executive Chairman of Vodafone Spain,” said Nick Read, CEO Vodafone Group. “I want to welcome Colman, an experienced Vodafone executive, to the role of CEO of Vodafone Spain and to join the Vodafone Group Executive Committee.”
