Richard Moat exits Everything Everywhere


Everything Everywhere chief financial officer and deputy CEO Richard Moat departs as new CEO Olaf Swantee unveils his new 10-strong management team

New Everything Everywhere CEO Olaf Swantee has today (September 1) unveiled a new 10 strong management teams as part of his plans to take the joint venture forward.

The latest restructure does not include CFO and deputy CEO Richard Moat, who has now left the joint venture after 18 months. Moat joined T-Mobile as CEO in May 2009, a year prior to the joint venture announcement.

He is the latest high profile member to leave the business following the resignation of Tom Alexander as CEO in July.

Other casualties from the restructure include, chief commercial officer Andrew Ralston, vice president of HR Ian Pitcher, vice president of strategy regulation and planning Nicolas Ott, vice president of trading Neil Macgeorge and chief change officer Linda Kennedy.

Macgeorge and Kennedy will remain with the company for the remainder of the year as consultants.

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 consists of:

·         Pippa Dunn, chief marketing officer – consumer;

·         Gerry McQuade, chief marketing officer – non-consumer mobile (and acting chief sales officer through the end of 2011);

·         Ralf Brandmeier, chief performance officer;

·         Marc Allera, chief sales officer (starting Q1 2012);

·         Jackie O’Leary, chief customer officer;

·         Steven Day, chief of brand & communications;

·         Francoise Clemes, chief of HR;

·         Stephen Harris, chief of staff;

·         Neal Milsom, chief financial officer;

·         Fotis Karonis, acting chief technology officer.




  1. Why is this simply a regurgitation of the press release not a commentary on what that means ?
    Is it a good thing ? What are the implications for 1, 2 or 3 brands ? More likely or less likely given Dunn's elevation to manage marketing for both brands ? How do the rest of the market, operators, suppliers, retailers view these changes
