Italy’s mobile telecom giant, TIM Participações S.A., said it has now restructured its leadership putting Sami Foguel as the new chief operating officer.

TIM said in a statement that As of August 27, 2018, TIM will evolve its organizational structure, with marketing, sales, caring, corporate and residential markets, and their respective managers reporting directly to CEO Sami Foguel.

In parallel with the new structure, Pietro Labriola ends the expatriate period in Brazil, after three years as Chief Operating Officer. The executive remains in TIM until September 30 to support and secure the transition phase.

The organizational evolution reinforces the line of proximity to the operations that Sami Foguel has been highlighting since his arrival at the operator: “My purpose is to always be present in the various activities of the company and support employees to perform their functions with excellence, with a continuous focus on the best customer experience,” says Foguel, CEO of TIM Brasil.

“TIM has a management with great experience, strength and motivation to successfully face the challenges ahead. A special thanks to Pietro Labriola for having contributed to achieving great results in recent years,” he said.
