NTL UK MD quits
Moves aside for Barclay Knapp to run the show
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". ®
