John Legere

T-Mobile CEO, John Legere, who has spent seven years on the hot seat will be stepping down.

The good news is that the current company president, Mike Sievert has been honored by the enigmatic executive as a replacement come end of April. This was given in announcement by T-Mobile on Monday morning. John Legere will as well become an active member of the company’s board who had previously participated in the formulation of a succession plan.

John Legere has remained the prominent face of T-Mobile on the grounds of its”Un-carrier” initiative. The campaign was launched in 2013 and has aimed at making the carrier achieve a little user-friendly attribute than most of its competitors. The campaign justifies removal of complimentary subscription to Netflix as well as surprise top-up fees in bills.

The legendary CEO had been a driving force in the acquisition of Sprint which has long been in a fight for regulatory approval from the U.S. government.

Through out last week, the rumour of Legere’s departure had been all over, with some pointing out that Legere may succeed outgoing WeWork CEO Adam Neumann
