Rogge named Vodafone Germany CEO
April 20, 2022
Philippe Rogge has been appointed CEO of Vodafone Germany and a member of the Group Executive Committee effective July 1st. Current CEO Hannes Ametsreiter will step down, effective June 30th, to pursue new career opportunities.
Rogge joins Vodafone after more than a decade with Microsoft including his most recent role for the last five years as President, Central and Eastern Europe, based in Germany. Prior to this, he held various leadership roles during an eight-year tenure with Belgacom Group (now Proximus).
“I want to thank Hannes for his contribution to Vodafone and helping to build a Gigabit society for Germany. Vodafone was first in the market with 5G pursuing new applications of technology to make society a better and greener place. When communities needed help because of the pandemic or as a result of natural disasters like the tragic flooding of 2021, Hannes and his team were there quickly offering support. I wish him all the best with his new career,” said Nick Read, CEO of Vodafone Group.
“I’m delighted to welcome Philippe as CEO of Vodafone Deutschland and to the Group Executive Committee. He has a proven track record of commercial, operational and financial success over the last decade delivering through a growth strategy across Europe, at one of the world’s leading technology companies,” added Read.
