T-Mobile CEO Philipp Humm resigns, jumping to Vodafone?
Mobile network operator T-Mobile USA has announced that its CEO Philipp Humm has resigned from his position in the company. Humm was with T-Mobile for two years before he announced his resignation. During that time, Humm’s role with T-Mobile was very vital especially when the company went through a difficult stretch, even weathering the bid made by AT&T.
René Obermann, CEO of T-Mobile‘s parent company Deutsche Telekom shared his take on Philipp Humm‘s resignation:
“Philipp Humm has given the company some important initiatives over the past years. Under his leadership the cost situation at T-Mobile USA has vastly improved and he led the company during a difficult phase regarding the planned merger with AT&T.”
“The reason that Philipp has vacated his position at such short notice has to do with his new employer. To my surprise, he informed me a few days ago that he would be joining a competitor(Vodafone).”
