Tiscali has named former World Online finance bigwig Ruud Huisman to succeed Renato Soru as chief exec of the Italy-based pan-European ISP.

Huisman's appointment still needs the green light when shareholders meet in April. Until then, he will act as Tiscali's managing director.

Huisman has been CEO of Tiscali Benelux and Scandinavia and member of the Executive Committee of Tiscali since October 2002. He comes from World Online International in the Netherlands, which he joined in 1998, first as COO and later as CFO.

After Tiscali's takeover of World Online in 2000, Huisman helped to integrate the business into the Tiscali Group.

Soru is stepping aside to pursue a career in politics. He will remain executive chairman of the board of directors of the company. ®
