“We are looking forward to working with Dominique Leroy. She has over 30 years of experience in the consumer goods and telecommunications industry and knows our industry inside out, ”said Timotheus Höttges, CEO of Deutsche Telekom.
Dominique Leroy notably worked at Unilever before joining Proximus in 2014 as CEO.
In early September 2019, it was announced that Dominique Leroy would join the Dutch telecom operator KPN. She left Proximus in September, but her appointment to KPN was aborted due to an investigation into possible insider trading. An amicable settlement was finally reached in this case.
“I look forward to this new challenge,” Dominique Leroy said in a press release from Deutsche Telekom on Tuesday. “I want to use my experience to develop the Europe division and contribute to the strategy of the whole group. “
Dominique Leroy will succeed Srini Gopalan, who will be responsible for the Germany division.
