Two senior executives have left WorldCom fuelling speculation that the upheaval at the company has yet to be concluded.

Vice President of Sales for EMEA, Liam Strong, and Vice President International Human Resources, David Anderson, have both left the monster organisation.

At this stage it's not known why they departed or what they plan to do. Indeed, WorldCom isn't particularly happy to tell us much about the exit of such key management players.

Indeed, the WorldCom publicity machine wasn't even primed to take enquiries on this issue.

However, in a hastily cobbled-together and somewhat snotty statement WorldCom said: "We can confirm that Liam Strong has left the company and that Lucy Woods (who she?) will be taking over his responsibilities. It is not WorldCom policy to comment on details of internal company issues.

"We can also confirm that David Anderson has left the company. But again will not comment on details of internal company issues.

"WorldCom wished both men well in their future careers," it said.

Whatever they might be. ®
