Amsterdam, 15 February 2018: VEON Ltd. (formerly VimpleCom the parent company of Jazz), announced today that Aamir Hafeez Ibrahim will replace Jon Eddy as the Head Emerging Markets (Algeria, Pakistan and Bangladesh) for VEON, while continuing as CEO of Jazz.

Prior to joining Jazz, Aamir was a Senior Vice President at Telenor, where he led transformation and distribution initiatives across Asia. Aamir previously held senior leadership positions at Ford, Jaguar and Land Rover.

 

Aamir will now report directly to Jean-Yves Charlier, VEON’s Chief Executive Officer, and will be part of the company’s senior executive management team.

 

Commenting on the appointment, Jean-Yves Charlier, Chief Executive Officer of VEON, said: “Aamir has extensive international experience and a deep knowledge of his respective market. He currently heads one of the most successful operating companies in our portfolio and I look forward to his contributions in helping grow our core connectivity businesses and accelerating the pace of development of our digital strategy. This move also reflects the wider changes in our business as we draw on leaders who are closer to their markets, with the requisite experience to guide our businesses on a global level.”
