Mobile operator Three UK today confirmed a new chief executive (CEO) would take over the company next month.

The current CEO, Kevin Russell, is moving back to his native Australia and, as a result, chief operating officer (COO) David Dyson is moving up the career ladder.

Dyson began at the company as chief financial officer (CFO) back in 2006, swapping to the role of COO in 2009.

Before this, he worked for the wider group Hutchinson both in Australia and Sweden, making his experience at the company add up to nine years.

"This is a good succession plan for Three UK," said Russell. "[Dyson] has a great track record working across Hutchison's 3G businesses. He has been a key member of my team and I have enjoyed working with him immensely."

Dyson will officially take up his post from 1 July 2011 and is excited about the tasks ahead.

"We are in a very strong position and I am looking forward to building on the growth we are now seeing," he concluded.

Although Three remains the smallest of the UK operators, pushed further behind by the merger of Orange and T-Mobile, it still hosts 7.2 million customers and was responsible for the first 3G mobile network in the UK.
