Vodafone elevates Naveen Chopra as COO in India

10 February, 2015

Telecom major Vodafone has elevated Naveen Chopra, currently working as enterprise services head, as its chief operating officer (COO), the company said in a statement.

This follows the company’s announcement last month that Marten Pieters, managing director (MD) and chief executive officer (CEO) has put in his papers and his role will be taken over by Sunil Sood, which is currently COO.  All the appointments will be effective from April 1, 2015.

Vodafone will announce a new director to look after enterprise services as Chopra’s successor in due course of time.

Chopra, who joined the company as vice president – corporate marketing in 2004, has served in various roles including as chief marketing officer (CMO). He has led Mumbai and Rajasthan circles as business head, before joining the executive committee as director – VBS.

Vodafone entered India in 2007 by buying Hutchison Whampoa’s local cellular assets in a $11-billion deal and later bought out Essar in the JV. It directly and indirectly owned a combined 84.5 per cent of Vodafone India, the country’s second-largest telecom firm by users and revenue and last year bought out its other partners Max Group’s Analjit Singh and Piramal Enterprises to make it a wholly owned firm.
