T-Mobile looks outside for new UK managing director
T-Mobile is close to announcing its new managing director, with senior staff told yesterday that an appointment is imminent.
An external appointment is expected to be made in the coming days, ruling out one of the most likely candidates, sales and services director Gordon Ballantyne.
The new man is understood to be a telecoms executive currently working in Europe.
It comes on the day that T-Mobile's previous managing director, Jim Hyde, returns to his native USA to take the helm at NTELOS, a regional fixed and mobile operator in America.
Jim Hyde resigned as UK managing director of T-Mobile in January.
