Deutsche Telekom Pan‑Net, the Group’s European shared platforms unit, swapped out its leadership with the introduction of a new managing director.

Jana Kvoriakova has taken the helm, replacing the Detecon‑bound Stefan Schnitter.

Kvoriakova was previously Senior Vice‑President, Business Excellence at Pan‑Net, a role that covered management of accounts, fleet and facilities, and procurement. She joined the Bratislava‑based unit in 2016 from local DT-controlled incumbent Slovak Telekom, where she led Procurement & Logistics.

Pan‑Net was launched in 2015 to build and operate Deutsche Telekom’s pan‑European infrastructure cloud, and sits under the Technology & Services Delivery function of DT’s Technology & Innovation division, led by Claudia Nemat (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #61, #67, #71, and #74). It has worked to centralise areas of the Group’s telecoms application production under the Pan‑Net platform. Recent developments include the completion of an mVAS programme to migrate voicemail services for eight European NatCos; the acquisition of three Austrian data centres, extending Pan‑Net’s footprint to nine countries; and participation in the EU‑funded 5G‑CARMEN autonomous driving project (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #105).

Schnitter has returned to in‑house consultancy Detecon as Managing Partner. His focus there has not yet been confirmed. During his last stint — as Partner between 2013 and 2017 — he led client and business development for operators in Europe, a mantle that is currently held by Peter Krüssel as Managing Partner and Global Head of Communications Industries. Krüssel is Detecon’s longest‑serving Managing Partner.

Detecon, a T‑Systems’ subsidiary, provides end‑to‑end digital transformation, strategy, and innovation advisory services. Headquartered in Cologne, it operates via offices in Asia, Europe, and the USA.
