R-Com brass rejig

New Delhi, Feb. 1 (PTI): Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications today said its wireless business head Syed Safawi was leaving the company and COO Shamik Das would oversee all the geographical divisions.

R-Com, the country’s second largest telecom player, is restructuring its wireless division.

“The contract of Syed Safawi, president wireless, has ended in the normal course and the same is not being renewed,” R-Com said in a statement.

The company is also merging all its geographical units, and the heads would report to Das, joint president & chief operating officer (COO).

“The primary objective is to enhance market competitiveness, execution excellence and improve productivity and quality of service in the field,” the statement said.

Das, a chartered accountant, has over 24 years of experience in the telecom sector. Prior to joining R-Com, he was with Bharti Airtel for more than 15 years.

According to R-Com, the restructuring would result in a leaner and flatter organisation. This would also help to strengthen its sales, distribution and customer service organisation and consolidate the backend operations.
