She leaves to take up position at security and identity solution provider Morpho
GSMA director general Anne Bouverot is to leave the trade body at the end of July after four years in the role.
She will become chair and chief executive officer of security and identity solution provider Morpho. The GSMA says that a search for her replacement is already underway.
Bouverot joined the GSMA in 2011 from Orange (France Telecom) where she was executive vice president for mobile services.
“Mobile is undeniably the most dynamic and rapidly evolving sector in technology today, creating significant opportunities for mobile operators and providing important socio-economic benefits for consumers and businesses around the world,” said Bouverot in a statement.
“I am very proud of the progress that the GSMA has made in aligning with our members around key industry initiatives, driving forward important advocacy programmes and convening the broad mobile communications ecosystem at leading events such as Mobile World Congress.”
