Virgin Media Business has announced that Peter Kelly, former Enterprise director at Vodafone, is to become its managing director from next month. He’ll report directly to Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media’s CEO.
Mr Kelly has spent the last five years at Vodafone and previously worked at Nortel.
He’s taking over from interim MD Tony Grace, who’ll return to his previous position as chief operating officer of the business division. Mr Grace was appointed as acting managing director in February.
Tom Mockridge said “Peter’s a very welcome addition to our executive team as Virgin Media Business has an important part to play in the growth of Virgin Media. Despite the economic challenges currently facing our public sector and private enterprise customers, the business-to-business market offers big long term opportunities for us. Peter is the right person to have on board to accelerate Virgin Media Business’s growth and challenge the incumbents in this market.”
