GSMA Appoints France Telecom Orange Exec as new Head

The GSMA appointed Anne Bouverot as its new head. Bouverot was most recently executive vice president of mobile services for France Telecom Orange. She has served on the board of the GSMA for the past two years.

Bouverot replaces long-standing CEO Rob Conway, who announced his resignation in June. However, Bouverot will not assume the label of CEO, instead taking the title of the GSMA's Director General to better reflect the GSMA's role as an association representing the interests of its members.

Prior to her most recent role at Orange, Bouverot was responsible for international business development at the operator, and her achievements include the privatisation of Telkom Kenya, new mobile licences in Armenia and Tunisia, and partnerships in Portugal and UAE. Before moving to Orange, she led a 600-person business unit of Equant and was responsible for developing IT services for Equant's multinational business customers. She began her career in telecoms as project manager for Telmex in Mexico in 1991.
