Prague, March 12, 2013 – T-Mobile Czech Republic is announcing a personnel change in the top management: Technology Director Frank Meywerk (48) will leave the Company in order to fulfil a new role within the Deutsche Telekom group. As of 1 April 2013, he will serve as a Member of the Management Board of T-Mobile Netherlands and Director of Technology, replacing Sietse Sijperda, who has decided to leave the Deutsche Telekom group.
In his new position, Frank Meywerk will be in charge of technological strategy and planning, implementation, operation and maintenance of the mobile and fixed networks for voice and data and IT-systems.
Frank Meywerk has been working in the Deutsche Telekom group since June 2004 and he joined TMCZ in May 2009.
