In this role, he will take over as a member of the Board of Management from Francois Fleutiaux, who has been a member of the T-Systems Board of Management since 2017 and is responsible for Global Sales and Marketing, effective January 1, 2022.

T-Systems is the market leader for IT services in Germany and has the second-largest market share in the DACH region. "We want to expand our leadership position in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and position ourselves particularly strong in our core markets, while we drive growth in our focus countries across the world," says Adel Al-Saleh, explaining the new strategy.
