SAO PAULO Oct 10 Amos Genish, chief executive
of Telefonica Brasil SA, on Monday said the
announcement that he was leaving the company's top post was
planned for Oct. 25, but had to be accelerated due to leaked
news of his departure.
In a conference call to explain why he was leaving, he said
the decision was discussed for about three months. Telefonica
Brasil said on Sunday that Genish will be replaced by Eduardo
Navarro de Carvalho, currently Chief Commercial Digital Officer
at parent company Telefonica SA, confirming a Reuters
report that Genish was going to step down.
