Andy Green will be leaving BT at the end of the year to become the CEO of LogicaCMG. Andy joined BT in 1986 and is currently CEO of group Strategy and Operations. He will take up his new role on 1 January 2008.
Andy has played a central role in many of BT’s defining moments during more than twenty years. From transforming the performance of the Payphones division in the eighties through to the original launch of broadband services.
But Andy's major contribution has been building a successful global business for BT. He led BT Global Services from 2001 to April 2007 through major restructuring and organic and inorganic expansion to reach its current position as a leading player in the global networked IT services market.
Andy Green said “I have had a fantastic twenty-one years at BT. Over that time I have been privileged to help the business grow into the strong confident company it is today and I would like to wish all my friends and colleagues success in the future. I am excited by the new challenge that becoming the CEO of LogicaCMG provides, and delighted that I will continue to have the opportunity to work with BT as a business partner”.
Ben Verwaayen, chief executive of BT, praised Andy Green’s achievements: “Andy has made a tremendous contribution to BT. He has led a remarkable turnaround in our global business, and helped set the company on its current course of profitable growth. We have all benefited from his commitment and his vision. I am sure he will be an outstanding CEO of LogicaCMG. Andy leaves with our best wishes for the future.”
The date when Andy Green stands down from the BT Board will be announced in due course.
