Alcatel-Lucent dumps Asia-Pac chief

Alcatel-Lucent has removed  Asia-Pacific president Sean Dolan after just a year in the job. 

It has tapped chief strategy officer Rajeev Singh-Molares, a former management consultant, to head up the regional business group.
Dolan was appointed just a year ago, taking over from 30-year Alcatel and Alcatel-Lucent veteran Etienne Fouques.
The company gave no reason for the dismissal from the position but a company spokesperson said that Dolan would remain with the company in an "as yet undetermined new role".
The changes are effective February 1, 2010.
CEO Ben Verwaayen said Singh-Molares was “the perfect person to take our already strong relationships with service providers, enterprises, and vertical markets throughout Asia Pacific to the next level – leveraging his strategic transformation expertise in working with customers to help them evolve their businesses and networks.”
Prior to joining Alcatel-Lucent, Singh-Molares worked 18 as a consultant or senior partner at the Monitor Group, a consultancy founded by business guru Michael Porter.
