Syniverse Appoints Chief Financial and Administrative Officer

Syniverse, the world´s most connected company, has announced it has appointed Andrew Davies as chief financial and administrative officer (CFAO), the company said.

Davies brings a broad level of expertise that will lead and improve Syniverse´s financial and administrative processes. He will report to Syniverse CEO and president Dean Douglas and assume his role in July 2020.

Davies has more than 30 years of leadership experience working with major global brands in the telecommunications and enterprise sectors. He replaces Simeon Irvine, who served as interim chief financial officer (CFO) and who will continue with Syniverse as its chief transformation officer.

Davies most recently served Sprint as its CFO from July 2018 until the closing of its merger with T-Mobile USA. He was responsible for day-to-day financial strategy and operations, including accounting and reporting, financial planning and analysis, treasury, tax, investor relations, risk management, auditing, and mergers and acquisitions. He also jointly led Sprint´s transformation program, which included deployment of-edge capabilities in analytics and digitalization technologies. During his time at Sprint, Davies also provided significant input into the integration and business planning of the “New T-Mobile” and its regulatory advocacy process.

Prior to joining Sprint, Davies served as Group CFO for Amsterdam-based VEON, where he led a global team and was credited as being instrumental in driving its transformation via a series of profound corporate finance transactions and significant operational transformation activities, both of which culminated in the resumption of a meaningful dividend program. Davies also played a key role in the formation of Wind Tre, the cellular communications business in Italy, which was a joint venture between VEON and CK Hutchison.

Syniverse is the world´s most connected company, revolutionizing how businesses connect, engage, and exchange with their customers.
