OSLO, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Telenor Norway Chief Executive Officer Berit Svendsen is leaving after a dispute about top positions in the group, Telenor said in a statement.
“I really hoped to continue working with Berit, while I was also clear that as leaders in Telenor, we must be prepared to rotate in the roles in order to increase the pool of competence and experience. It’s disappointing that we have not succeeded in finding a role that Berit wanted to take on,” Telenor Group CEO Sigve Brekke said.
The board expressed full confidence in Brekke.
“The Board of Telenor ASA is pleased with how the Group CEO has followed up on the Board’s plans to develop internal successor candidates,” chair of the board, Gunn Waersted, said.
