Erzsébet Fitori, director general at the FTTH Council Europe is to leave her role to explore the next chapter in her career.

Fitori joined the FTTH Council Europe as director general in September 2016, bringing with her more than a decade of experience in regulatory affairs and public policy. This includes four years as director at the European Competitive Telecommunications Association (ECTA), a trade association representing 100+ pro-competitive operators across Europe. She took over the role from Professor Hartwig Tauber

Speaking about Fitori’s departure, Kees De Waard, president of the FTTH Council Europe said: ‘We wish Erzsébet all the best with her new endeavours. We are saddened to see her leave but are grateful for her tireless efforts to transform the council into a financially solid, growing, influential and widely recognised organisation that unites the entire fibre value chain.

‘Erzsébet has built a very strong and competent senior management team, who will be instrumental to a smooth transition. With such a committed and capable team and board as well as the solid and favourable state of our affairs I am confident that we will continue to work effectively in our members’ best interest and deliver another great FTTH Conference 1-3 December in Berlin.’

Fitori will continue in her role as director general until 31 May, and the council has started working on a transition and succession plan, with the set-up of a special committee to manage the transition process. Until the end of May Fitori will work with the team, focusing on leading preparations for the FTTH Conference - which was re-scheduled to run in Berlin in December due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic - preparing the transition as well as continuing to ensure the council’s operation to the benefit of its members.

The team at Fibre Systems would like to take this opportunity to wish her well in her new endeavors and say thank you for all the help and support she has given us - not to mention her valuable expert opinion!
