Chief Executive Officer    
Mr. Michael Patrick Foley

Michael Foley joined Telenor Pakistan as the Chief Executive Officer on July 1, 2014. With a global work experience in 11 countries, he has proven himself as an experienced executive level leader, consultant and speaker on telecom, technology and governance issues.

Foley has more than 30 years of sales, marketing and operational experience in the telecom and retail sectors from both advanced and growth markets. Before taking over the helm at Telenor Pakistan, Michael Foley was serving as the Chief Commercial Officer of the Canadian State Lottery, Atlantic Lottery Corporation.

He started his career with Procter & Gamble and became adept in commercial and marketing functions. Later, with his expertise in the field, he created and managed marketing companies in Canada and large commercial teams in the telecom sector. As Chief Commercial Officer of Celtel Nigeria, he was responsible for looking after sales, retail, marketing, service development, data services, customer care and seven operation regions of the company.

Foley served as executive level leader at M-Tel Bulgaria, Emirates International Telecommunications, New Brunswick Telephone, Bell Canada, @Home Networks (Canada) and Board of Excite Canada Inc.

Michael's career journey has focused on building telecoms excellence in markets where the industry plays a critical role in the development of society and in creation of economic competitiveness for national economies

At the core of his contribution to the business is the building of leadership excellence throughout the organization and mentoring future senior executives. He has a particular interest in the creation of strong governance processes and institutions.

"A company like Telenor has a role beyond that of being an excellent servant of its clients in the provision of telecom services. Its success lies in strong measure in being a stellar example of good governance, corporate citizenship, and in being a strong, vocal and respectful actor in civil society."

Michael is married to Maureen Koech, an economist with experience in Retail Banking and Emerging Market Financial Inclusion projects. His daughters Breanna (16) and Madeleine (13) along with his spouse have relocated to Pakistan with Michael.
