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 countrys 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.
