BTopenworld to get new chief exec

Andy Green to head up BT Ignite

BTopenworld is looking for a new chief exec following today's announcement that CEO Andy Green is to take charge of BT Ignite from November.

The current BT Ignite CEO, Alfred Mockett, is to step down at the end of November to take up a position as chairman and CEO of an as yet unnamed US-based public company. The monster telco said Mr Mockett's departure was "amicable".

A replacement for Mr Green will be announced in due course. Whoever takes up the job of running BT's retail Internet and broadband outfit will have a job on their hands.

The business is nicknamed "openwound" by some commentators because it is haemorrhaging so much money. ®
