Antonio has been with Vodafone for 28 years including the last eight years as CEO of Spain.

In 2016 he became CEO of Vodafone Turkey driving the growth and transformation of the company through digitalization.


"I want to thank Antonio for his contribution to Vodafone over the last 28 years particularly in his country CEO roles and as a key member of the group executive team. I am also pleased that he will continue as Non-Executive Chairman of Vodafone Spain," said Nick Read, CEO Vodafone Group. "I want to welcome Colman, an experienced Vodafone executive, to the role of CEO of Vodafone Spain and to join the Vodafone Group Executive Committee."
