He brings more than 25 years of senior executive international experience, having worked with leading operators and communication companies. Over his career, he has held multiple C-level positions in both Europe and Asia, including CEO & board member of T-Systems (Deutsche Telekom) and CEO at Siemens Communications.

Prior to becoming the CEO at T-Systems (Deutsche Telekom), Pauly was assigned COO in the former Mobile Communications unit (ICM) at Siemens in 2000. Subsequently, he played a decisive role in the 2004 merger of the two former Mobile Communications (ICM) and Fixed-Network (ICN) units.

With his extensive leadership experience and knowledge of the telecom industry, our new chairman will bring unique expertise and act as a sounding board to our expansion strategy of akenza in the DACH region and beyond.
