Deutsche Telekom Announces Departure Of Corporate Communications Director


Ulrich Lissek, Head of Corporate Communications at Deutsche Telekom until November 15, 2006, will leave the Group effective March 15 by mutual agreement and take on other tasks. Deutsche Telekom CEO René Obermann was very sorry to hear of Mr. Lissek’s decision: “Good communication, both internally and externally, is extremely important in successful years and even more so in difficult years. Ulrich Lissek met these requirements optimally. For that I would like to thank him.”

Mr. Lissek left “Die Welt“ daily newspaper to join the Communications department of Deutsche Telekom in 1993, where he soon took on managerial tasks in the Group Press Office. He was in charge of internal and external communication from mid-2002. In addition to the Group’s three public offerings and many stages of Deutsche Telekom’s internationalization, his time in office also included Deutsche Telekom’s large-scale debt reduction program and the repositioning of the company. Mr. Lissek was also in charge of crisis communication, for example on the toll collection issue, and set up Issues Management. As Head of Corporate Communications, he was also responsible for Brand Law, Group Sponsoring and Communications Controlling.
