#GoodLuckRonan: O2 bids farewell to former CEO
Former O2 boss Ronan Dunne has served his last day at the UK network, handing over to incoming CEO Mark Evans.
Dunne ended his 15 year O2 tenure at the network’s HQ in Slough, where thousands of employees joined special guests Vernon Kay, England Rugby captain Dylan Hartley and Head Coach Eddie Jones to bid him farewell.
O2’s usual advert at the front of the building was replaced with a picture of Dunne, accompanied with the hashtag #GoodLuckRonan.
Dunne announced his intentions to leave the network earlier this year ending his nine-year spell at the helm of O2; the longest in the industry.
He will now move to the US to take up a senior role at Verizon, leading the US telecom firm as group president and executive vice president.
Former CFO Mark Evans will now take on the top job, after being officially appointed CEO of O2 on 1st August 2016.
