Colao will be replaced by Nick Read, finance director since 2014 and long seen as the likely successor due to his role in running Vodafone's operations in Britain and the Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific region.
Vodafone is also merging its operations in the highly competitive Indian mobile market with Idea Cellular.
Having joined Vodafone in 2001 he has held a number of roles including sitting on the boards of the company's listed operations in Africa and Qatar, its subsidiaries in India and Egypt and its joint venture in Australia.
