Kyivstar Appoints Moe Financial Director To Replace Simmons

The Kyivstar telecommunication operator has dismissed from April 1, 2011, Andrew Simmons from the post of financial director and appointed Trond Moe vice president / financial director.

Ukrainian News learned this from a statement by Kyivstar.

Simmons transfers to another position (he has been holding the post since 2006).

Moe has headed the Ukrainian office of the Telenor Company, which is one of indirect owners of Kyivstar.

Moe was vice president / financial director of Kyivstar in the 2000-2006 period.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, the Telenor Company closed its office in Ukraine in January 2011.

On October 5, 2009, the Altimo company (Russia) and Telenor agreed to merge Kyivstar and VimpelCom to create a new cellular communications operator, VimpelCom Ltd. (Bermuda islands), to provide integrated cellular communications services in Russia, Ukraine, and other member-countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States, as well as in Georgia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

Kyivstar and Beeline intend to complete their merger by 2014.
