    New Vodafone CEO Needs ‘Safe Pair of Hands’ for Deals, Rivalry

    Vodafone Group Plc’s choice of Nick Read as its next chief executive officer suggests the board is looking for more of the same for one of the biggest jobs in European telecoms. Read, a long-time deputy of current CEO Vittorio Colao, will take over in October after four years as CFO and having previously run Vodafone’s emerging markets and U.K. divisions. An accountant by training, Read joined Vodafone in 2001 following senior finance roles at UBM Plc and FedEx Corp.

    [$$] Vittorio Colao rang the changes at Vodafone — not on a BlackBerry

    back in 2008, it was a mobile phone operator pinning its hopes on the new BlackBerry Storm handset — a device that had no WiFi connectivity and required users to master a revolutionary “popple dome” screen, which functioned as a giant button. Thankfully, Mr Colao has since provided a much needed upgrade, a cleaner design and more effective City communications — for the company, as well as for 556m customers. Upgrading the business involved turning a consumer-focused 3G, or even 2G, network operator into a converged broadband, TV and telecoms provider.

    Vodafone Announces CEO Colao Departure After Decade at Top

    Vodafone Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Vittorio Colao is leaving after a decade of retreating from aggressive global growth in favor of the European market, handing the reins to company veteran Nick Read. Vodafone made the surprise announcement as it reported earnings and predicted potentially slower growth ahead on competitive pressures in Italy and Spain, causing the stock to drop the most since February. The Italian executive leaves Read to see through Vodafone’s $22-billion agreement last week to acquire cable assets from Liberty Global Plc, which rounds out Colao’s reshaping of the Newbury, England-based company into a predominantly European carrier.
