Tanny Price takes charge at Yes


Former Avenir managing director Tanny Price has taken charge at Yes Telecom after the service provider parted company with three senior directors.

Simon Howitt (marketing director)  Kevan Wakerley (finance director) and Ray Bell (operations director) have left the company.

News of the departures was revealed yesterday evening to Yes Telecom dealers, who were also told Price would be taking charge as part of her head of Vodafone distribution role.

A statement from Yes to its dealers claimed the three named had “left the business to pursue other interests.”

A Vodafone statement said: “Vodafone UK has made changes to the management of Yes Telecom, the distributor acquired in 2006. Three of Yes Telecom’s senior management have stepped down as a consequence.
“Changes at Yes Telecom will see a more streamlined organisation with closer alignment to the objectives of Vodafone UK’s enterprise business. These will drive greater efficiencies through a revised distribution strategy, which will be announced later in 2009.

“Vodafone continues to invest in its indirect channel and is committed to delivering real customer benefits through it. Yes Telecom will be headed by Tanny Price as part of her her new role as Head of Vodafone Distribution.”
