Ooredoo  Oman has appointed Ian Dench as the new chief executive officer. Dench joins the company from the Ooredoo group, where he served as group chief commercial officer.

Dench, who joined majority shareholder Qatar's Ooredoo in 2006, replaces Greg Young who resigned in October. With over 25 years of experience in leading telecommunications companies from around the world, Ooredoo Oman expects Dench to continue to grow Ooredoo’s established success.

He has worked in telecommunications companies across Europe, Asia and Middle East. Prior to joining Ooredoo he was the head of sales and marketing operations for Batelco. He also held various senior leadership positions with O2 and British Telecom.

Dench joined Ooredoo Qatar operations in 2006 as executive director, corporate and VIP accounts. In 2012 he was appointed as the chief marketing officer. He was a key member of the Ooredoo Qatar leadership team and had significantly contributed in building Ooredoo’s market share in Qatar through developing and maintaining strong product and service portfolios.

Dench is a member of the board of Indosat Ooredoo, also ICT Company NavLink and an advisory board member for the Asia Pacific Internet Group.

As CEO of Ooredoo Oman, Dench will lead the company through the next phase of network enhancements and the digital evolution of products and services to customers across Oman.

The telco reported a 5.4 percent fourth-quarter profit growth last week.
