inge smidts 27 december 2017The rapid decision to appoint Smidts, who is the current chief marketing officer at Liberty Global, was taken in order to maintain strong leadership in the company just as a new phase starts under Liberty Latin America.

Smidts will begin her tenure in February 2018, until which time John Reid will help ensure a seamless transition. Following Liberty Global’s restructure in LATAM, she will report to Betzalel Kenigsztein, Liberty Latin America’s COO.

Balan Nair, incoming president and CEO of Liberty Latin America, said: “Inge is a proven executive who has delivered strong results throughout her career. We are excited that she has agreed to lead C&W and join the Liberty Latin America team next year once the split from Liberty Global is complete.”

“Inge is a dynamic leader who has successfully driven financial performance and built capable teams,” added Kenigsztein. “As we look to the future for C&W, we are confident that Inge is the right leader to help rebuild operations that were damaged by this year’s hurricanes and deliver growth for all our stakeholders.”

Prior to her role at Liberty Global, Smidts was SVP for residential marketing at Telenet Group. Before that, she gained relevant brand and marketing experience at Procter & Gamble.
