      Sad news? Telenor is not even at par with Mobilink in Pakistan at the moment. A reshuffling of portfolios is always beneficial for all concerned departments, management and business history will tell you.

      • Ahmed

        As per PTA’s Industry report (Dec 2011), Mobilink has 30% of market share whereas Telenor is very close at 25% of total market share (and its getting better and better). No doubt, Telenor will soon eat Mobilink.

    Personal differences aside, but a good step to promote Bilal as CCO. His tenure has always seen Mobiink brands flourish in a unique positive way.

    So who is next VP sales then? Mr. Younas Iqbal Sheikh would be a great choice if Mobilink can catch him… Catch him if you can

  • Usman

    I think , one major change is also required at lower level! i-e aLL the Territory Supervisors must be designated as TMs(territiry Managers) and
    company vehicals atleast (1000 CC) must be entitled to them! this will surely help to improve sales, Motivation and credibility in the market!
