T-Mobile CEO John Legere will be stepping down from his post at the end of April 2020, after the expiry of his contract, as announced Monday.
Speculations have arose that Legere will become CEO if WeWork. However, Legere himself shot down the speculations.
“I want to be clear, I was never having discussions to run WeWork,” Legere declared.
Legere has also stated that “he’s already had interest from other companies looking for a transformation.”
“It can’t be companies I hate, which eliminates Verizon and AT&T from the list,” he continued.
Reportedly, Legere will be replaced by Mike Sievert, who is the current president and chief operating officer of T-Mobile US.
Apparently, Sievert’s contract will allow him to leave if he won’t become T-Mobile CEO within six months of the merger closing, as per The Verge.
T-Mobile has also declared that John Legere will remain as a board member and that he will assist with the company’s long awaited acquisition of long time rival, Sprint.
Mike Sievert is known to be the more toned down T-Mobile executive compared to John Legere, who has a reputation to swear.
“So rest assured, T-Mobile will continue to innovate on behalf of consumers… and we will continue to put customers first,” Sievert said.
“After all that’s what the Uncarrier is all about -cutomer experience obsession.”
