New Delhi: Telecom giant Bharti Airtel on Wednesday said it has appointed two new Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) for its broadband and direct-to-home services.
"Both these verticals are part of the consumer business group that will lead the overall strategy for the business-to-consumer segment (B2C), with a clear focus on customer experience, product and service innovation and building an ecosystem around the B2C services," the company said in a statement.
