John Legere has formally reduce ties with T-Cellular US, the corporate he led as CEO for over seven years. After steerage T-Cell via a dramatic turnaround that culminated in its successful merger with former rival Dash, Legere stepped down and Mike Sievert was appointed T-Cellular’s new leader executive in advance this month. At that time, Legere had mentioned he might stay on T-Mobile’s board of directors until June 4th.
But that’s not the case anymore. In an 8K filing with the SEC these days, T-Mobile discovered that Legere is leaving the board “efficient immediately to pursue different choices.”
“Mr. Legere cited that he used to be not resigning because of any war of words with control or the board on any subject,” T-Cell mentioned in its note, which also contained a quote from Legere addressed to the company and its staff:
In his notice to the company, Mr. Legere said “It has been a privilege and honor to have led T-Cellular as CEO for the previous seven and a part years and served on the Board of Directors. And although i can be leaving the Board just a few weeks sooner than deliberate, be confident that I stay T-Cell’s #1 fan!”
No Matter What Legere has planned next, it sounds as if it couldn’t wait some other month and change. All Over his time as T-Cellular CEO, Legere stood out from different executives for his outspoken persona and brazen, often vulgar trash talk directed at competitors like Verizon and AT&T. He branded T-Cellular because the “uncarrier” and led the company through a change that concerned transferring clear of two-yr contracts, sponsored telephone pricing, and other trade practices that had transform status quo for the mobile trade. many of those changes have been later adopted through T-Mobile’s rivals.
Legere has introduced few clues about the place he’s headed, although he did refute reviews in November that he’d been in discussions to enroll in WeWork.
Permit the theory start.
