    [$$] Permanent Digital Revolution Faces Vodafone’s New Boss

    “Everything needs to change, so everything can stay the same.” Vittorio Colao must be wearily familiar with this maxim from classic Italian novel “The Leopard” after a decade as chief executive of mobile giant Vodafone. With 5G on the way, his successor Nick Read may find change just as constant. When Mr. Colao, a North Italian cycling enthusiast, took the top job in July 2008, he inherited a sprawling empire of mobile-phone assets on five continents.

    Vodafone Group PLC Chief Executive Vittorio Colao is set to leave his position after reshaping the world’s second-biggest mobile carrier by subscribers over the past 10 years. The move comes less than a week after the U.K. telecommunications company announced a $23 billion deal to buy operations in Germany, Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic from cable tycoon John Malone’s Liberty Global. Mr. Colao, a 56-year-old Italian reserve military officer who took over as CEO of Vodafone in 2008, will be replaced by Chief Financial Officer Nick Read on Oct. 1, the company said Tuesday.

    Germany likely to hold 5G spectrum auction next year - regulator

    Germany's Federal Network Regulator said on Tuesday it planned to auction spectrum for fifth-generation (5G) mobile services in early 2019, rather than this year as originally planned. "We want to auction the frequencies as quickly as possible," said a spokesman for the Bonn-based regulator, confirming a report in the Handelsblatt newspaper. Handelsblatt reported that the delay had resulted from a row between the transport ministry and the network regulator, which is also known as BNetzA, over the conditions under which bidders will be admitted to the auction.

    Vodafone Chief Executive Vittorio Colao will step down in October after 10 years in which the Italian reshaped the world's second largest mobile operator into a digital communications powerhouse with a string of major deals. The urbane Colao will be replaced by Nick Read, finance director since 2014, whose broad international experience had marked him out as the likely next leader of a group with 536 million mobile customers and 47 billion euros (41.3 billion pounds) in revenue. Last week Vodafone struck a $21.8 billion deal to buy Liberty Global's cable TV and broadband networks in Germany and other markets to strengthen its business in Europe, where 35 percent of its proforma revenue came from fixed line last year.

    New Vodafone CEO Needs ‘Safe Pair of Hands’ for Deals, Rivalry

    Vodafone Group Plc’s choice of Nick Read as its next chief executive officer suggests the board is looking for more of the same for one of the biggest jobs in European telecoms. Read, a long-time deputy of current CEO Vittorio Colao, will take over in October after four years as CFO and having previously run Vodafone’s emerging markets and U.K. divisions. An accountant by training, Read joined Vodafone in 2001 following senior finance roles at UBM Plc and FedEx Corp.

    How Vodafone was shaped into a behemoth

    It says much about Vodafone's relatively youthful status as a public company and its meteoric growth that Nick Read will be only the fifth chief executive in the mobile giant's history when he succeeds the highly-regarded Vittorio Colao in October. Sir Gerry Whent, the first chief executive, oversaw the birth of the company when Racal Electronics, a military radio specialist, was in 1982 awarded one of two licences by Margaret Thatcher to run what was then called a cellular telephone network. Sir Gerry oversaw the flotation on the stock market, in October 1988, of what was still called Racal Telecom and was valued at just £1.8bn.

    Vodafone Group was backsliding in Tuesday trade following the release of full-year trading numbers. Instead, market jitters were set in motion after it was announced that company veteran Vittorio Colao, whose leadership over the past decade has seen Vodafone’s global customer base almost double, would be replaced as chief executive in October by current chief financial officer Nick Read.

    Vodafone boss Vittorio Colao departs with mixed legacy

    The boss of Vodafone has just agreed an €18.4bn (£16.1bn) to buy the German and eastern European cable networks owned by America’s Liberty Global, but will leave it to his successor, finance chief Nick Read, to make the deal fly. The urbane Italian, who may have a future in politics, has radically reshaped the business in his time at the helm, pulling back in some areas, notably the US with a $130bn (£96bn) exit from its US joint venture with Verizon, while expanding in others. Vodafone trumpeted that it has, under hin, been “transformed“ from “a consumer focussed 2G/3G mobile operator” to “one of the world’s leading converged communications companies”.

    Vodafone boss Vittorio Colao hands over the reins

    Vodafone chief executive Vittorio Colao is quitting after 10 years in which he built the business into one of the biggest telecom players in Europe while returning billions to shareholders. Under Colao, Vodafone scrapped sprawling global ambitions, most notably with the $130 billion (£96 billion) sale of its joint venture with US giant Verizon. Over the period, Vodafone became the biggest payer of dividends in the FTSE 100 and therefore a core holding of almost every pension fund.
