Ooredoo Announces New Appointments for Subsidiaries

Qatari telecoms firm Ooredoo announced that it has approved two new appointments at chief executive level for two of its international operations.
Ross Cormack, former chief executive officer (CEO) of Ooredoo’s Oman arm Nawras, has been named as CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar, the newest operation of the group.
Ooredoo was granted one of the two landmark foreign operator licences in Myanmar in July.
Greg Young took on the role of CEO for Nawras, with effect from October 23.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Thani, chairman of Ooredoo, said: “Ross Cormack has created a leading telecoms business in Oman, and will now bring the full weight of his passion and industry knowledge to our newest market, Myanmar. Greg Young is an extremely experienced industry figure who will further drive our success in the key market of Oman. We wish them both all the best in their new roles.”
Ross Cormack was instrumental in the original bid for a telecoms licence in Oman in 2004, and has led the company since then. Nawras currently offers fixed and mobile broadband services to nearly 2.3 million people in Oman.
Greg Young worked as CEO of Sri Lanka Telecom, which is the largest telecoms operator in Sri Lanka, with more than 10,000 staff.
Ooredoo has a presence in markets such as Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Algeria, Tunisia, Iraq, Palestine, the Maldives and Indonesia.
The company reported revenues of $9.3 billion in 2012 and had a consolidated global customer base of more than 92.9 million people as of 31 December 2012.
