DiGi chairman to drive Asia's growth
Johansen appointed Head of Telenor in Asia
SHAH ALAM, 13 January 2006: DiGi.Com Berhad Chairman Arve Johansen has been appointed Head of Telenor in Asia as the region becomes increasingly important to the Telenor Group. Johansen will continue as DiGi.Com Chairman and Telenor Senior Executive Vice-President.
DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd Chief Executive Officer Morten Lundal said: "Johansen's appointment clearly illustrates Telenor's confidence in the region and Malaysia through DiGi."
In a news release in Fornebu, Norway, Telenor said it is now establishing Asia and Eastern/Central Europe as separate areas of responsibility, with dedicated Executive Vice-Presidents, as Telenor has previously done with its Nordic operations.
Besides DiGi.Com, Telenor has a strong presence in mobile markets in Bangladesh (through GrameenPhone), Thailand (Total Access Communication, operating under DTAC) and Pakistan (Telenor Pakistan).
