Johannes Opitz from DT, new member of the IO Executive Board

It is with great pleasure that IO welcomes Johannes Opitz, Vice President Commercial Roaming and International Mobile Wholesale at Deutsche Telekom, as a new member of the Executive Board. IO wants to express our gratitude to Rolf Nafziger, former DT representative on the Executive Board, for his contribution and dedication in the past two years.

Since the launch of IO in April 2021, the non-profit member organisation has focused on Roaming and Interconnect, recently adding Messaging to the scope of work. Receiving great recognition from the industry through mobile operator engagement, MNOs have a neutral space for focus and collaboration across all IO Labs. Within the IO Labs, MNOs find a neutral environment for collaboration to raise awareness, become more aligned with industry dynamics, and actively prioritize significant connectivity projects.

“My deep passion for our industry is matched only by the desire to bring my contribution to developments that ultimately have a meaningful impact on society. I am also a firm believer that Roaming needs to transform itself, anticipate trends and sensibly shape them to foster sustainable growth. I am ready to roll up my sleeves and bring Roaming to the forefront of innovation.”
