Everything Everywhere has announced a new management team with ten executives reporting to new Chief Executive Officer Olaf Swantee. Mr Swantee moved from being a non-executive board member to CEO on 1st September as Tom Alexander stepped down.
In a statement, Mr Swantee said “The leadership team I’m announcing today draws from the existing talent within Everything Everywhere as well as bringing in some new faces with broad-ranging, international expertise. The structure of the team is function oriented with clear accountability so we can accelerate the execution of our key plans and priorities. I am committed to the established business goals and financial targets – as well as to running a responsible and sustainable business.”
The new leadership team is notable for the inclusion of Marc Allera as Chief Sales Officer from next year - he recently announced plans to leave his position as sales and marketing director at Three UK - and for the absence of former T-Mobile CEO Richard Moat, who’d been CFO and Deputy CEO. Also leaving the Everything Everywhere management team are Andrew Ralston, Ian Pitcher, Nicolas Ott, Neil Macgeorge and Linda Kennedy.
Tim Höttges and Gervais Pellissier - Everything Everywhere board members and also on the management teams of Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom respectively - issued a statement that said “We would like to congratulate Olaf on his new appointment and wish him and his new management team all the best of success for the future. At the same time we would also like to thank Richard Moat for the role that he played as CFO and deputy CEO for Everything Everywhere. Richard was a highly valued member of the former management team and was instrumental in ensuring a rapid integration between Orange and T-Mobile, as well as reaching synergy savings ahead of time. We wish him all the best for the future.”
