Telefónica announces the organisation structure of its new Latin America unit
Dec 18, 2019
Telefónica’s Appointments and Remuneration Committee has today given its approval to the organisational structure of Telefónica Latin America. This decision needs to be ratified by the Board of Directors of the Company.
The new structure encompasses the Telefónica Group's operating business in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela and aims to guarantee the best value proposition for the customers of the region in a sustainable way. It follows the recent announcement of the new company plan made by the Chairman and CEO of the Company, José María Álvarez-Pallete.
As CEO of this unit, Alfonso Gómez, will report to the Group’s Director of Finance and Control, Laura Abasolo, newly appointed president of Telefonica Hispam. The unit aims to provide greater agility and autonomy in its management and to give greater independence to local operations, in order to focus on maximising growth and value of the region.
The new regional team is made up of professionals who have a track record in the Group and a high level of knowledge and experience in the region. It will have the agility and flexibility required to work in changing environments.
Thus, the Latin American operations will be managed as an autonomous unit, with a specific and dedicated regional team who, among other aspects, will focus on seeking out new models and alternatives that maximise the value of the operations in the region, attracting investors and potential synergies with other market agents.
