Three become ONE: Telekom Slovenije’s Macedonian units complete merger

12 Nov 2009

The Macedonian business units of Slovenian telecoms group Telekom Slovenije yesterday merged into one company under the ‘ONE’ brand, the new company’s officials said in a statement. Macedonian mobile operator Cosmofon, fixed line provider On.Net and retail chain Germanos have amalgamated under the unified banner as part of the parent group’s strategy of improving its presence in the country. Commenting on the reorganisation, ONE’s new chief executive officer Olivier Poncin said: ‘Basically, autumn 2009 seemed for us a good time to draw a line in the sand on the past and, more importantly, roll out a set of possible ways that would determine how we would operate in the future. Re-branding is a wonderful tool with which we could make some much-needed changes to the business internally, such as define more effective processes, improve communication lines, establish dialog etc. This will also involve changes in our marketing strategy, and advertising themes for the future.’
