Orange gets new COO

Top management speak

Sanjiv Ahuja, 46, has been named as the new COO of Orange Group replacing co-founder, Graham Howe, who said earlier this year that he planned to step aside.

Before this Sanjiv was president of Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bellcore) after a stint as CEO of California-based Comstellar Technologies.

He began his career at IBM in 1979 as a software engineer rising up through the ranks and eventually becoming responsible for IBM's distributed network and systems business.

In a statement Sanjiv said: "I am excited about joining the Orange team at this juncture of its growth. At Orange we have an unprecedented opportunity to leverage our vast technical resources, market position and brand to transform ourselves
into one integrated company providing world-class solutions to our customers."

With management speak like this no wonder the guy's done so well. ®
