Lycamobile has appointed Chris Tooley as its new CEO. He replaces Milind Kangle, who left the company on February 14 after more than 10 years at the helm.

Tooley (pictured) will be responsible for the business in all 17 countries that Lycamobile operates in, and will include expansion to further territories throughout this year.

He has spent the 10 years at the company and was previously responsible for MVNO development, corporate governance, compliance and international affairs.


Premananthan Sivasamy (pictured right), who has been Lycamobile’s COO for the past eight years, has now taken on the role of deputy chairman. He will report directly to Group chairman Subaskaran Allirajah.

Lycamobile said a new COO to replace Sivasamy will be announced later this year.

Allirajah said: “It is crucial to the future development of Lycamobile’s success that our management team is rich in experience and understanding of the business.
