Telenor Pakistan promotes COO to CEO

Telenor Pakistan promoted COO Khurrum Ashfaque (pictured) to CEO, replacing Irfan Wahab Khan who will take a new role as SVP in Telenor Asia.

Ashfaque will begin his role on September 15 and has served Telenor Pakistan for 17 years in multiple senior roles, including as CTO for six years between 2014 to 2020, before he was promoted to COO.

“As we navigate the evolving telecommunications landscape, my focus will be on empowering our customers and driving digital transformation,” said Ashfaque on his appointment.

Khan takes up his new role on the same day, joining the Telenor Asia leadership team in Singapore. He joined Telenor Pakistan in 2004 as its first employee and has held various leadership positions across the Telenor Group in Europe and Asia.

He was Telenor Pakistan’s chief executive for the last seven years where he has been “instrumental in ensuring business resilience and furthering the digitalisation agenda.”
