Bryn Jones, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of UK-based multinational telco Three, has decided to resign from the company after six years.
Jones joined Three in 2012, heading up network strategy, design and employment, following his previous role at Virgin Media.
It has been indicated that the CTO will not be directly replaced; his duties will instead be shared out across teams as Three reorganises its leadership strategies. The key staff taking up Jones’ responsibilities will include COO Graham Baxter and Director of Network Strategy, Phil Sheppard.
Baxter has been at Three UK for 11 years, having been CTO from 2007-11, with a previous stint at Orange UK. Sheppard has been at Three since 2000, and previously worked at BT.
The company has stated Jones is leaving to pursue a career and lifestyle change, which will involve an improved work-life balance.
A spokesperson from Three told TechRadar Pro: “Bryn has been core to improving our customer experience and, more recently, putting the foundations and contracts in place for our 5G network.”
