Stephen Carter, the MD and COO of NTL UK and Ireland, is to leave the company at the end of the year.

NTL is not looking to find a replacement for Mr Carter. the cableco gave no reason for Mr Carter's departure.

However, in a memo seen by The Register Mr Carter explains that it was a "personal decision" to leave, but one prompted by the fact that NTL president and CEO, Barclay Knapp, would be taking over the day-to-day running of the UK business once the cableco emerges from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

In a bid to avoid duplication, and perhaps internal conflict, it seems Mr Carter advised Mr Knapp that his role of COO and MD would "become an unnecessary one". ®
