Top Orange exec joins Brightstar


Harris was in charge for supply chain and procurement at Orange for eight years, moving to European supply chain role with France Telecom for the past two years. Millar’s European team is now almost complete, with Simon Charters also in place as finance director.

Also, Brightstar UK sales director Sarratt has quit the business for personal reasons. Sarratt was on the brink of leaving last month, only to be persuaded to stay by Millar. However, it appears undisclosed personal circumstances forced him to quit last week.

Millar said: “We thank him for his hard work and hope to work with him again one day.”

Millar’s team is now almost complete, with former 20:20 sales director Richard Baxendale installed as UK managing director, Michael Moeller as regional managing director for Germany and the Nordics and former Brightstar Mexico managing director Roberto Rodriguez regional managing director for Iberia.
