NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Reliance Communications(RLCM.NS), India's No.4 mobile phone carrier by customers and revenue, on Monday named Vinod Sawhny as its chief executive officer.

Reliance Communications, controlled by billionaire Anil Ambani, previously had chief executives for its wireless, enterprise and international business divisions, but no overall CEO.

Sawhny previously worked with Bharti Group, which takes in top mobile phone operator Bharti Airtel Ltd (BRTI.NS), for more than a decade in various roles.

Gurdeep Singh, chief executive at Reliance Communications' dominant wireless business unit, will also head satellite television and consumer broadband businesses in his new role as CEO of consumer business, Reliance Communications said in a statement.

Reliance Communications last Friday reported third-quarter results that missed expectations.
