Telia needs to find a new group chief operating officer following the resignation of Dr Rainer Deutschmann, who will leave the Scandinavian telco at the end of May “to pursue opportunities outside the company.” Deutschmann, who was one of the many telco executives to discuss the impact of GenAI on the industry during this year’s MWC24 event in Barcelona, joined in 2020 from Sri Lankan operator Dialog Axiata and has previously held roles at Reliance Jio and Deutsche Telekom. Deutschmann has been responsible for Telia’s “common products, networks, IT and services, as well as responsible for driving the company’s digital transformation to become more agile with simplified operations, focused on growth, and with improved customer experience,” the operator noted in this announcement. As of 1 June, Hein Müskens, Telia’s group chief information officer,  will add to his role by also becoming the temporary group COO until a permanent replacement is found.

Dell Technologies’ share price hit an all-time high this week following the release of an investment note from Morgan Stanley that suggested the server vendor was set for a stellar year of revenues from products that support AI workloads, CNBC has reported. “All-in, we are hearing about more AI server momentum at Dell than at any other OEM,” wrote Morgan Stanley analyst Erik Woodring, who highlighted the close relationship between Dell and Nvidia, the AI chip giant, and raised the target price for Dell’s stock to $152 from $128. The note sent investors racing for Dell’s stock on Wednesday, when the vendor’s share price gained more than 10% to top $150 before settling down to close Thursday trading at $146.30. Dell’s share price is up by almost 96% this year as sales of its products soar on the back of demand for high-end servers and storage units. 

Helios Towers, which owns and operates more than 14,000 telecom tower sites in nine countries across Africa and the Middle East, has reported a 14% year-on-year increase in first-quarter revenues to $194.6m and a 104% increase in operating profit to $67.3m. CEO Tom Greenwood noted: “We have started the year well, continuing the momentum from 2023 to deliver strong operational and financial performance…  This was one of our strongest quarters for tenancy additions, supporting tenancy ratio expansion to close to 2.0x and towards our 2026 target of 2.2x.” The company has added 482 sites in the past year to take its total to 14,166 and has added 2,566 “tenants” to take its total to 27,686 by the end of March.
