Telenor Myanmar has appointed Mr. Amaresh Kumar (48) as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Amaresh comes from the role as Chief Product Officer in Telenor India. He succeeds Joslin Myrthong, and will start in his new position in Myanmar in late May 2018.
Amaresh Kumar has a vast background from the telecom sector. For more than 20 years he has held different positions within sales and marketing in several of India’s leading mobile operators. Amaresh Kumar joined Telenor India in 2010 as head of Pricing, Revenue Planning and Market Research and became Chief Product Officer in 2011.
“I am truly impressed by Telenor Myanmar’s achievements. In record time the company has taken a lead position in offering attractive and affordable mobile services to everyone. In less than four years, Myanmar has moved to become one of Asia’s most advanced markets. I have a passion for creating customer value, and I look forward to working with a dedicated team to offer our customers services that are easy to use, always affordable and that provides the best possible experience,” says Amaresh Kumar.
Telenor Myanmar has the largest network of retailers in Myanmar. Customers can buy Telenor SIM cards or top up their balance in more than 100 000 shops across the country. This wide distribution network guarantees that customers always can find Telenor products closest to where they are. The success of this distribution model has made Telenor the fastest growing mobile operator in Myanmar with more than 19 million customers. The company has also introduced a series of innovative voice and data services, positioning itself as the most loved brand by customers in Myanmar.
“I am satisfied that Amaresh is joining my management team. He brings with him experience from one of the world’s toughest and most competitive mobile markets. I am confident that he will strengthen Telenor’s position as a customer favorite in Myanmar. I also like to congratulate Joslin for his new role in Telenor Group and thank him for driving Telenor as the market leader in Myanmar, introducing a series of unique services and products that are new but deliver superb values for our customers,” says Lars Erik Tellmann, CEO of Telenor Myanmar.
