Alan Whelan named Batelco CEO

Dubai, April 2, 2014

Bahrain's Batelco has appointed Alan Whelan as group chief executive, the state-run telecommunications operator said on Wednesday, nearly 11 months after its former CEO quit.

Whelan is an industry veteran whose former employers include BT, AT&T and telecom companies in India and Macao.

Whelan replaces Sheikh Mohamed bin Isa al-Khalifa, who quit last May. Also departing last summer were long-serving Peter Kaliaropoulos, himself a former Batelco CEO, and ex-finance chief Marco Regnier.

Prior to Whelan's appointment, a three-person committee of board members were in charge of Batelco.

The company's shares hit a 16-year low in January, but have since rallied to be up 15.5 per cent so far in 2014.- Reuters
