'Last man standing' flees AOL Europe exec team

LLU pioneer Sky-bound?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

AOL Europe's CTO Colin McQuade, described by one insider as "the last man standing", has quit the firm, which is struggling for a niche after flogging its broadband customers to Carphone Warehouse.

The rumour within what is left of AOL Europe is that McQuade has followed former UK MD Andy Joesco to Sky, which is aggressively pursuing its own LLU program.

At time of writing Sky had not confirmed the mumblings. AOL said it had no information on his destination, though the irony of the ad served on the internal message from European chief Dana Dunne is noted (See here).

McQuade has been replaced by Bill McGrath, who has worked on European project to transition broadband subscribers away from AOL. ®
