TTB Leadership Team Announcement

TalkTalk Business changes leadership structure to focus on a full fibre future

As TalkTalk Business matures and evolves, it is a natural time for us to make some wider changes across the business to align with our focus and strategy – and we’re pleased to share with you what those are.

TalkTalk Business (TTB) has announced a reshuffle of its senior leadership team to drive and shape the growth of one of the UK’s largest B2B providers of broadband, fibre and ethernet data services.  

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 specially 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, bringing incremental value to TalkTalk and its Partners.

Richard Thompson, Managing Director 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.

Our strategy is defined by the needs of our Partners and customers, this is the reason why we have made it our ethos to ensure that they are at the forefront of what we do. Tristia Harrison, Chief Executive 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.”

Jonathan Kini, Managing Director of TalkTalk Business commented: “I’m thrilled that Ruth and Richard are both taking on new responsibilities at an incredibly exciting time for TalkTalk Business. We will remain focused on a full Fibre future and continue to keep our Partners and customers at the heart of every decision that we make.”

We hope you can join us congratulating them – they show exciting momentum in the business. And the team at TalkTalk Business will continue to ensure that we do the right thing for you. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our Partners, Carriers and SI for your business, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship.
