New RomTelecom, Cosmote CEO targets ‘efficient’ integrated group

7 Jun 2013

Nikolai Beckers, the new CEO of Romanian sister companies RomTelecom and Cosmote Romania, has told local business daily Ziarul Financiar that his primary focus is on transforming the pair into a ‘functional, efficient’ group providing an integrated service. While clarifying that an operational merger is still at a preliminary stage, he commented: ‘From my perspective, the economic logic of the merger of the two companies is obvious. We have discussed fixed-mobile convergence services, which [currently] come from two operators. A fluent business without any interruptions is better’.
