Michael joined Deutsche Telekom AG in 2001, successively taking on leadership roles with increasing financial and commercial responsibility - first at the company's subsidiary T-Mobile Deutschland and since 2009 on group level. Prior to joining Deutsche Telekom AG, Michael Wilkens held Finance positions at German telecom firms debitel AG and e-plus GmbH.
