Orange Business Services has announced the departure of its CEO, Helmut Reisinger, who had been with the company for over 14 years.
According to a company statement, Reisinger will be replaced by Aliette Mousnier-Lompré, EVP of Operations and Customer Service, on an interim basis from 17 January 2022 until a new CEO is appointed.
“Helmut Reisinger wishes to pursue other professional opportunities outside the Group,” read part of the statement.
As CEO of Orange Business Services since 2018, Reisinger oversaw the transformation of Orange’s B2B entity into a global network-native digital services company, combining its core operator DNA with its expertise as a service integrator in support of businesses as they undergo their own digital transformation.
In an increasingly complex world, data analytics, cloud, security and IT services, combined with network and connectivity expertise, are now essential components for business competitiveness, said the statement.
Stéphane Richard, Chairman and CEO of Orange commented: “I would like to thank Helmut Reisinger for his constant commitment to the development of the Group’s B2B activity. In particular, he successfully built-up new activities within Orange Business Services linked to data and cloud computing that have seen double-digit growth for many quarters.”
“During his time, Helmut turned Orange Business Services into a world leader in software-defined networks. I wish him great success in his future endeavors,” concluded Richard.
