Power 50 Profile: Mark Bond, interim head of enterprise unit, Vodafone Uk
Bond edges just ahead of predecessor Kyle Whitehill, who is now COO of Vodafone India, and whose influence was waning as he was being groomed for the job in Vodafone’s most exciting new market. Bond has developed through the ranks at Vodafone’s enterprise unit, climbing from marketing to be the interim head. He has been instrumental in Vodafone retaining 50% of the corporate market under fierce competition from O2, and is a passionate advocate for convergence. He talks of Vodafone’s duty to ‘make markets’, pursuing mobile email, remote working and secure mobile applications as mass-market propositions.
