BT is speaking to a wide range of candidates to fill the role, following the announcement that current CEO Gavin Patterson will leave the company later this year
BT has spoken with former Ofcom boss, Lord Carter, about becoming the company’s new CEO, according to a report Sky News.
Sources close to the matter told Sky News that while Lord Carter had been approached about the role, he was not yet an official candidate.
Lord Carter is just one name on BT’s list of potential successors to Mr Patterson and is yet to publicly confirm or deny his interest in the role.
Other names on BT’s watch list are believed to include EE CEO, Marc Allera, Tele2’s CEO, Alison Kirby and OpenReach’s Clive Selley.
BT is expected to announce a shortlist of potential successors to Mr Patterson later this year, with a final appointment expected to be made around October.
