Telkomsel, a cellular operator subsidiary of state-owned communications company PT Telkom Indonesia, has appointed Setyanto Hantoro to lead the company as its new president director.

Setyanto was named Telkomsel's new boss during the company's extraordinary shareholders meeting on Monday, replacing Emma Sri Martini, who was named the financial director of state-owned energy giant Pertamina by State-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir.

Telkomsel’s president director seat had previously been vacant for months after Emma left the company last November.

Telkom Indonesia and major Telkomsel stakeholder Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (SingTel) also appointed Venusiana Papasi as Telkomsel’s network director in the latest corporate reshuffle.

“The appointment of a new Telkomsel general director and network director is in line with our corporate strategy as we strive to become a digital telecommunications company that contributes to national development,” Telkomsel spokesperson Denny Abidin said in a statement on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.

Setyanto is no stranger to Telkom’s corporate ecosystem, as the 45-year-old previously served as a member of the company’s board of directors in 2016. Prior to his appointment as the new Telkomsel general director, he also served as the general director of PT Multimedia Nusantara – a subsidiary of Telkom in the investment sector – as well as the general commissioner of PT Jalin Pembayaran Nusantara, another Telkom subsidiary.

Telkomsel recorded a positive performance in the third quarter of last year, booking a total Rp 68.3 trillion (US$4.9 billion) in profits. (rfa)
