Meet the CEO: Pernille Erenbjerg, TDC

At the heart of TDC is the ability to connect people with one another, and with a dedicated strategy to do that in a simpler and better way, Pernille Erenbjerg took the reins of Denmark’s incumbent and largest telco company, TDC, in January 2015. Operating in a volatile and competitive market, it is no secret that TDC has struggled to secure viable growth across the business and satisfy shareholders. Through ambitious and courageous acquisitions such as the Norwegian broadband company GET and the mobile company, Onfone, TDC has gone to great extents to grow its market share. Disruption of the media industry, raging price wars and tough competition in an all too saturated market as well as pressure from the EU to reduce roaming prices are just some of the challenges in the industry.

Since taking over the CEO role, Pernille has attacked challenges head on and mastered an ambitious re-branding of TDC Consumer into the YouSee brand  to differentiate private and commercial customers. “The Simpler and Better strategy is a broad statement that refers to all our stakeholders and applies both to our customer interaction and internally in TDC”, says Pernille Erenbjerg. “It is our governing principle and expresses how TDC Group will drive a streamlined business. The re-branding to YouSee is just one example of how we are trying to make things simpler and better for our customers”.

At this event, we have invited Pernille Erenbjerg to talk about her strategy and vision for TDC including:

•         The new TDC strategy
•         Disruption of the media industry and how it has affected TDC’s value chain
•         Operating in a volatile and highly competitive market
•         Working with data-driven change
