Everything Everywhere CEO resigns
Tom Alexander steps down after just over a year in charge of Everything Everywhere.
Olaf Swantee, current executive vice president in Europe for France Telecom and Everything Everywhere board member, will replace Alexander.
Alexander will stay on as an Everything Everywhere adviser and assist Swantee with the transition into the CEO position.
Alexander will leave the provider completely at the end of the year.
"There is never an easy time to leave a company that you care deeply for but, for personal reasons, I feel now is a good moment to step back," Alexander said.
"I'm proud of what we've accomplished: we conducted a rapid integration of the new company, completing a companywide restructuring, and maintained good commercial momentum throughout, delivering record retention levels and growth on our contract customer base across both brands."
Alexander joined Orange in 2008 as CEO of the UK arm, before being placed in charge of Everything Everywhere on 1 July 2010.
Swantee has had plenty of IT experience, having held senior roles at HP and Compaq.
"Olaf Swantee has a deep knowledge of Everything Everywhere's business and has been a director on the Board of the company since its very beginning, and is ideally placed to provide both continuity and progression," said Tim Hottges, chairman of Everything Everywhere's noard and chief financial officer of Deutsche Telekom.
"He has the strong support of both parent companies, with his extensive European-wide mobile experience, and was recently instrumental in the forming of the Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom Globall Procurement Alliance."
Everything Everywhere is reportedly going to lose another key staff member soon.
Phil Robertson, the man in charge of the companies' device division, is thought to be moving over to HTC, the Independent reported.
