supun-weerasingheSupun Weerasinghe joined Robi Axiata Ltd as the company’s new chief executive officer and managing director, the mobile operator said in a statement yesterday ( 1 january 2014).

Weerasinghe replaces Michael Kuehner, who has retired from full-time corporate life.  Kuehner will, however, continue to be a member of the Board of Directors of Robi Axiata Ltd.

“Robi is perhaps one of the most dynamic companies in Bangladesh and I am enthused by the challenge of steering it through the next phase of growth,” Weerasinghe said.

“It is an honour and privilege to lead Robi as the internet era begins with the deployment of 3G services,??? he said.
“I look forward to empowering Bangladesh with affordable, high quality wireless data and internet connectivity,” he added.

Weerasinghe served as group chief strategy officer at Axiata Group Berhad in Kuala Lumpur. He also served as the head of network transformation strategic business unit under which he provided leadership to group technology, carrier collaboration and the Axiata Intelligence Unit (previously Axiata Management Services).

Prior to the Axiata Group, Weerasinghe was the group chief operating officer of Dialog Axiata Plc, Sri Lanka’s mobile market leader.

Robi is the third largest mobile phone operator in Bangladesh with more than 25 million subscribers. Robi is part of Axiata.
