LONDON — Britain’s telecoms titan BT Group on Monday appointed Allison Kirkby to replace Philip Jansen as chief executive, saying the switch would take place toward the end of January 2024 at the latest.
Kirby has previously served as president and CEO of Swedish telecoms provider Telia, with experience at Virgin Media and Denmark’s TDC. She has been a member of the BT Group board for the past four years.
“I’m fully supportive of our strategy and am excited about leading it into its next phase of development, as we grow to support customers, shareholders and the U.K. economy,” Kirby said.
Jansen will remain on hand to support the handover until March 2024, before retiring.
