New Telecom Italia Chief Presses Stability To Employees

  • Luigi Gubitosi, the Elliott Management-backed director who’s become CEO at Telecom Italia (NYSE:TI), is emphasizing stability after a year marked by a pitched battle for the company between Elliott and top shareholder Vivendi (OTCPK:VIVHY).
  • “My goal is to give back Telecom Italia the stability that has been missing since time,” he tells employees in a memo seen by Bloomberg.
  • “What we have in front of us is a complex but exciting challenge that will require strengthening the business, improving financial performance and making relations with stakeholders more fluid,” he continues.
  • Gubitosi was selected to take over after the ouster of Vivendi-favored Amos Genish, and he’s likely to move the company toward steps to separate its fixed network from the rest of the company, a move Vivendi opposed.
