What Role Will DT Play in the Global Telco Consolidation Game?
DT is going to have a new boss at the end of the year: the 51-year Timotheus Höttges. This profile will provide IDC's answer to a very important question: where is DT going over the next few years? Höttges needs to impress with a strategic plan to take DT into a new era: as the successor to one of the company's most successful CEOs, Rene Obermann, Höttges has large shoes to fill.
Obermann focused on stabilizing DT, after the Ron Sommer years. Höttges must now focus on growth — expansion and aggressive market consolidation.
