TIM is pleased to announce that it has further enhanced the quality, skillset, and experience of its senior management team, appointing Elisabetta Romano to the role of Chief Technology Officer.

Reporting directly to Chief Executive Officer, Amos Genish, Ms. Romano will join the Group on July 1st , and she will be responsible for ensuring technological innovation, evolution of the networks, and for the Information Technology required to support TIM’s digitisation process at Group level.

Ms. Romano is the latest in a string of new senior hires to join the Group, all of whom are highly qualified, experienced, and internationally recognised for their expertise. She follows the recruitment of Stefano Siragusa as head of network infrastructure, Riccardo Meloni as head of human resources, and Pietro Scott Jovane as head of commercial.

Romano has been working in telecommunications, IT and Media for around 30 years, with a career primarily at Ericsson, both in Europe and the United States. Her extensive experience in a sector that has seen significant transformation – and will continue to do so – will be central to enabling TIM to seize the emerging opportunities created by the convergence of content and technology.

Ms. Romano previously led Ericsson's TV & Media division, developing innovative solutions and services for TV operators and content providers around the world. Most recently, she was head of Ericsson’s Core Network division, focussing on the development of connectivity services, particularly those linked to mobile broadband using 5G technology.

In her new role with TIM, Ms. Romano will also oversee the integration of engineering processes, and the development of technological infrastructure, platforms and IT applications, as well as the governance of the related businesses.

Elisabetta Romano does not have shares in the company. CV attached.
