No.3 mobile operator Total Access Communication Plc (DTAC) has appointed head of Telenor Myanmar Sharad Mehrotra as its new chief executive, replacing Alexandra Reich.

Mr Mehrotra, who joined Telenor 12 years ago, has served in senior management positions across Asia, including head of Telenor India.

"With his vast experience from mobile operations in highly competitive markets, he brings insights and knowledge that will serve DTAC and its customers well," said Boonchai Bencharongkul, chair of DTAC's board, which voted to appoint Mr Mehrotra yesterday.

The appointment takes effect Feb 1. Mobile and telecom operators are preparing for the 5G spectrum licence auction on Feb 16. The change could affect DTAC's spectra choice for its 5G network, said an analyst who requested anonymity.
