American Tower Corporation (ATC) has named Martin Bouchard as its new CEO of Germany.

As first reported by Telco Titans, Bouchard replaces Philipp Riederer, who is moving to a new role as vice president of marketing & business intelligence at American Tower Europe.

During this time at DT, Bouchard held several leadership positions at the telco, notably as senior VP of technical planning and rollout, plus a role that saw him manage fixed network targets.

In his new role, he will oversee the growth of ATC's German business.

Germany is ATC's biggest market in Europe, with the company operating nearly 15,000 sites in total.
