Telecom software industry body TM Forum is seeking a new CEO following the ousting of Peter Sany as its president and CEO, Light Reading has learned.
Sany was relieved of his duties by the Forum's board, according to an industry contact. Deputy CEO Nik Willetts is acting as interim CEO.
The TM Forum confirmed that Sany was no longer CEO and that a public statement was forthcoming.
The move comes only days after the Forum appointed a new CFO, Olga Martynov.
The TM Forum, best known for its OSS models and specifications, is currently seeking a way to bring together the multiple open source network management and orchestration efforts underway in the comms sector with the intention of creating a hybrid network management platform that incorporates diverse open source efforts.
