NTL rejigs senior management

Sights set on Telewest merger

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

NTL has reshuffled its senior management ahead of its take-over of fellow cableco Telewest.

Stephen Burch - who has worked for US cableco Comcast for the last 17 years - has been appointed as NTL's president and chief exec and will continue in that role once the two companies have merged.

Burch succeeds Simon Duffy, who becomes executive vice chairman of NTL and the enlarged group once it's completed.

As part of his job Duffy will oversee NTL's ongoing "growth strategy" which may include the eventual take-over of Virgin Mobile.

NTL and Telewest confirmed plans to merge back in October in a deal worth $3.8bn. ®
