Jeff Dodds appointed New CEO of Tele2 Netherlands

Tele2 today announced that Jeff Dodds has been appointed new executive vice president and CEO of Tele2 Netherlands.

Jeff succeeds Ernst-Jan van Rooijen who has been acting CEO and who now reassumes his role as CFO of the company and will assume his position on April 14 2014.

Jeff has spent the past five years working for Virgin Media, most recently in the role of chief marketing officer, responsible for Commercial Strategy, Customer Experience and all aspects of Brand and Marketing. Since October last year Jeff has also been acting as an executive strategy consultant, working with European telecoms companies Liberty Global and ComHem and the leading UK advertising agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH).

Mats Granryd, president and CEO of Tele2 said, “Jeff has a proven track record of swiftly and resolutely guiding companies to achieve great results. Together with our experienced CFO, Ernst-Jan, who has done a phenomenal job as acting CEO for the past months, they constitute a team that will offer our customers what they need for less.”

ā€œIā€™m a huge fan of challenger brands and the benefits they bring to consumers, often providing game changing innovation and increased value for money. And having spent the last five years at Virgin Media, the opportunity to join Tele2 to lead their challenge in the Dutch market is incredibly exciting,ā€ added Jeff.
