O2’s Dunne linked with Verizon job
Former O2 CEO Ronan Dunne has been tipped to take a senior job at Verizon, according to reports.
The Times has suggested that the long serving O2 man will move to the US telecoms firm, who recently acquired Yahoo.
Dunne announced his decision to leave several weeks back, with CFO Mark Evans confirmed as his replacement.
Since then, the Telefonica-owned business revealed its financial results, in which there was a drop in revenue. The network attributed this to the slowdown of the smartphone market.
If he makes the move then Dunne would become the third network CEO to move abroad. Olaf Swantee swapped the UK for Switzerland departing for Sunrise after leaving EE. Jereon Hoencamp of Vodafone left Britain to join the brands joint venture in the Netherlands.
O2 declined the opportunity to comment.
