Yota CEO Denis Sverdlov appointed Deputy Minister of Communications
Denis Sverdlov was appointed Deputy Minister of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation. This was reported by the press service of the government.
Denis Sverdlov, 34, has been the CEO of Scartel (owner of the Yota brand ) since 2007 . As Vedomosti wrote before the appointment, Sverdlov was one of the supporters of the idea of turning Scartel into an infrastructure operator, on whose networks other telecom operators could provide services.
Last year, Global Telecoms Business magazine included Denis Sverdlov in the ranking of the most successful young entrepreneurs in the field of telecom under 40 years old.
