T-Systems streamlines Board of Management

  • New Board consists of CEO and three Managing Directors
  • François Fleutiaux will become the new Commercial Director
  • Anette Bronder will leave T-Systems at her own request

As part of T-Systems’ transformation journey, the company announced today that as of January 1, 2019, the new Board of Management will have four instead of six members. It will consist of the CEO, a Commercial, Financial and Human Resources Director. The position of Commercial Director has been newly created integrating all customer activities and relationships, including sales, marketing, partner management and customer life-cycle management. 
"We are shaping T-Systems into a leaner and more agile organization. We replaced the old monolithic structure with ten nimble customer-driven portfolio units. We also bundled our go-to-market functions in one central organization. And we integrated all global delivery functions into one unit. All units have complete responsibility for their functions, products and solutions as well as considerably less hierarchy,” explains Telekom Board member and T-Systems CEO Adel Al-Saleh. “The Management Board is not an exception. Here, too, we have flattened our structure, and pushed day-to-day management responsibilities to newly created functions.” 

Newly created position of Commercial Director

The T-Systems Supervisory Board has appointed François Fleutiaux to the newly created position of Commercial Director. Fleutiaux was part of the Management Board of T-Systems responsible for the old IT division. In addition, Christoph Ahrendt (Finance) and Georg Pepping (Human Resources) will remain on the Board.
By establishing the new portfolio units, the old divisions (for Information Technology, Telecommunications and Digital Business) will be phased out by the end of the year. Former Managing Directors Anette Bronder (Digital Division) and Patrick Molck-Ude (Telecommunications Division) will leave the Board. 
Anette Bronder will leave the company at the end of 2018 at her own request. "I would like to thank Anette for her great commitment. Thanks to her work, T Systems is now one of the leading digital service providers," says Adel Al-Saleh. Anette Bronder joined T-Systems as Managing Director in August 2015. She was responsible for setting up the Digital Division and Telekom Security – two major growth areas in T-Systems’ new portfolio structure. 
Patrick Molck-Ude will take over the management of the portfolio unit "TC Services" on January 1, 2019. In this new function he will lead T-Systems’ largest portfolio unit serving national and international large enterprises with global networks fit for their digital journey. "I am very pleased that Patrick has decided to take on this role for T-Systems. His expertise and customer relationships are particularly valuable to us in this phase of transformation," says Adel Al-Saleh.
