Orange gets Tollett replacement


Orange chief executive Tom Alexander has informed staff of Jean-Pascal Van Overbeke’s replacement, and also named O2 head of new business channels Martin Stiven as vice president of enterprise and corporate markets.

Stiven replaces Paul Tollett, formerly vice president of business. Tollett’s role has been scrapped in favour of the new position.

Stiven spent 10 years at O2. His other roles within the network included head of corporate account management, head of key account sales and head of multi-national sales.

Orange has also confirmed Alexander Lunshof will join as vice president of legal and regulatory in early October.

Lunshof was recruited internally and was previously part of France Telecom’s general counsel for mergers and acquisitions. Previously, Lunshof worked for American law firm Coudert Brothers for eight years.

Stiven’s appointment attends the arrival of Guillaume van Gaver to replace Jean Pascal van Overbeke as vice president of sales and loyalty, as revealed by Mobile News last week. Stiven joins in November.

Orange Uk chief Tom Alexander confirmed the changes to staff in an internal memo on August 27.

Retail director Sian Doyle has been given responsibility of the internet and telesales channels, while director of indirect sales Duncan Hay will now also be responsible for partner channel sales.
