Sprint gets new CEO

19 Dec 2007

The US cellco Sprint Nextel has unveiled Daniel R Hesse as its new president and CEO following the resignation of Gary Forsee in October. Hesse was previously the chairman, president and CEO of Embarq, the wireline operator which was spun off from Sprint in 2006, and before that was head of Sprint’s local telephony business. Embarq says Tom A Gerke has been installed as interim CEO. Forsee left Sprint following criticism of his failure to halt slowing subscriber growth.
