TalkTalk Business Changes Leadership to Focus on Full Fibre

The Business Division of UK ISP TalkTalk has today announced a reshuffle of its senior Director-level leadership team, which aims to help the internet provider “focus on a full fibre future” and boost growth in their other broadband, fibre and Ethernet data services.

In short, Ruth Kennedy, currently Director for Carrier and SI’s, will move to a brand-new role reporting directly into the CEO to lead and build a new team looking especially at Business Development across all business units. Ruth will lead a strategic team that will focus on creating long-term value by utilising TalkTalk assets, customers and relationships to identify new revenue streams, or expanding existing ones.

At the same time Richard Thompson, TalkTalk’s MD of Indirect, will now expand his current role as the Director of Partners to take on Carrier and SI alongside the Marketing and Partner Sales teams, with a view on “encompassing all our indirect channels to market.”

Tristia Harrison, CEO of TalkTalk, said:

“TalkTalk Business is an ambitious company with a DNA grounded in disrupting the market. As part of our commitment to maximise our national, scale Fibre First Network, we want to create a new team who will work across the business to explore all of the opportunities that a Fibre future will bring.

We are delighted that Ruth and Richard will continue to play a significant role within the leadership team. Their breadth of experience makes them ideally placed to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our customers and Partners as we focus on a full fibre future.”

The recent sale of their FTTP based FibreNation network to Cityfibre has left the ISP without any proper full fibre infrastructure of their own, although they will benefit from an expanded wholesale agreement to access Cityfibre’s wider UK network and are also planning to launch FTTP products using Openreach (BT) platform in the very near future.
