Virgin Media has announced three high profile departures following the news of job cuts and organisational reshuffles.
Executive director of mobile and home phone Graeme Oxby, executive director of broadband Jon James, and Jeff Dodds, chief of marketing, will all leave the company as part of the restructure. Dodds will briefly take on the role of chief integration officer before leaving Virgin Media next year, while Aarne Aho, executive director of delivery and support, will become role as executive director of products, propositions and segment. Last week the operator revealed that 600 jobs were begin scrutinised during a 90 day consultation period.
Dana Strong, Virgin Media’s chief operations officer, said: ‘Jon, Graeme and Jeff have been instrumental in Virgin Media’s success to date, developing and transforming our services and I can’t thank them enough for their vast contribution. As consumers increasingly look for combined entertainment and communications bundles, we’re building a structure that will allow us to harness the combined strength of our services under a unified product strategy. Virgin Media has always led the market in innovation and it’s by focusing on the collective power of our products that will help us to continue to disrupt, innovate and grow.’
