ISP TalkTalk Business Appoints Ruth Kennedy as New UK CEO

Tuesday, Nov 28th, 2023 (12:03 am) - Score 2,320

Broadband ISP TalkTalk Business (TTB) has this morning announced that the UK company’s existing Managing Director, Ruth Kennedy, has been officially promoted to the top job of Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The move comes as the wider TalkTalk group is going through a lot of changes, while trying to tackle its debt pile.

Ruth joined the provider as MD back in March 2023, having previously held a variety of senior roles across sales, commercial and operations in TalkTalk’s Wholesale and Group Business Units since 2011. She brings over two decades of experience across the telecoms sector to the role.

The new boss will be expected to deliver “exceptional customer experience, optimising operations and driving product innovation” for the company’s 80,000 existing business customers, as well as to support their future growth plans.

Tristia Harrison, CEO of TalkTalk Group, said:

“I would like to extend my congratulations to Ruth on her appointment as CEO of TalkTalk Business. She has done a fantastic job in leading the business to its record high customer satisfaction and is held in extremely high regard not only at TalkTalk but across the telecommunications industry as a whole. This is very exciting news for TalkTalk Business and for its customers, and I have no doubt that under her leadership, the business will continue to make considerable strides.”

Ruth Kennedy said: “I’m delighted to become CEO and to continue our mission to support thousands of UK businesses – from SMEs to large enterprises – with fantastic connectivity, affordable prices and an outstanding service. … As a newly independent business, we will build on this momentum, take our business to the next level and continue delivering for our customers.”

The change comes after the group announced plans to demerge into three separate businesses (here) and their related decision to sell the business division (TT Business Direct) to its own shareholders for £95 million (here).
