STOCKHOLM -- Lars Nyberg, President and CEO, has decided to leave TeliaSonera. "I am greatly relieved that Mannheimer Swartling has not found anything to support the allegations that TeliaSonera committed bribery or participated in money laundering. This is something that I have been convinced of since these allegations emerged. "At the same time, the Mannheimer Swartling review criticizes TeliaSonera, not least that we did not conduct a sufficiently in depth analysis into the identity of our local partner in Uzbekistan before we invested in the country or into how this partner came to own the assets that were later obtained by TeliaSonera. Even if this transaction was legal, we should not have gone ahead without learning more about the identity of our counterparty. This is something I regret. "When the board received the Mannheimer Swartling report, I was informed that there would be significant changes to the composition of the board. In order to continue as chief executive I need a functioning board and their explicit support. I was informed that as a result of the pending changes to the board they were not prepared to express that support. "At that point I made up my mind that I would leave my position as chief executive and therefore I am resigning. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved at TeliaSonera during my five and half years as chief executive. It is a fantastic company with a huge number of competent and committed employees."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
