“The new centre will have up to 300 employees and will supply services for France Telecom companies of all countries. Romania is highly important to us, we are keenly interested in the Romanian market and, up to this date, our investments reached EUR 1.6 million. In Europe, Orange is the greatest broadband fixed telephony, VOIP and IPTV (wireless internet services, voice services via internet and television via internet, editor’s note) supplier, and our ambition regarding Romania is to provide more than mobile telephony services,” the Vice President of France Telecom for Europe and Egypt, Olaf Swantee.


Thierry Millet was, up to this moment, the interim manager of the operator, after the Richard Moat’s resignation, following the latter’s being appointed general manager of the T-Mobile Company in UK. Thierry Millet has over 20 years of experience with the company Orange – France Telecom, reaching several official positions at international level.


‘The aim of the company I represent is to keep the leadership on the relevant local market, but in a fair-play general climate. Orange is in a competition where there has to be fair-play. The company I represent wishes to continue to be number one, without resorting to strategic partnerships’, said the head of Orange Romania, hinting at the Zapp-Cosmote merger, Agerpres informs.


‘Romania is a very important market for Orange France Telecom, and the over EUR 1.6 M invested in our 11 years of work on the local market stands proof of that. We are affected by the economic crisis, but we do have the solutions to counteract the phenomenon’, said Millet.
