Amos Genish departs Telecom Italia Board six months after being ousted as CEO

Posted by

Telecom Italia’s former CEO Amos Genish has stood down from the company’s board. Genish was ousted as CEO from Telecom Italia in November 2018 while on a business trip in South Korea. Frank Cadoret, who runs Vivendi’s Canal+ unit, will replace Genish on the board. The change is a sign of the improved relationship between US activist investor Elliot and Vivendi, the company’s largest shareholders. Genish has received a €4.2 million settlement payment.
