Following the recent appointment of Tom Alexander as Chief Executive of Orange UK, Orange today bolstered its senior team, announcing three additional Executive Management Team positions – Chief Operations Officer, Chief Development Officer, and Chief of Staff & Communications.
Andrew Ralston has been appointed Chief Operations Officer and will chair a newly-formed Operations Board. This board will be responsible for ensuring Orange UK’s competitiveness and the successful day-to-day running of the business.
Gerry McQuade has been appointed Chief Development Officer, and will chair a newly-formed Development Board. This board will be responsible for ensuring Orange UK has clearly defined, integrated and communicated priorities.
