Sievert will take on the role from May 1, 2020
T-Mobile has announced that Mike Sievert will become the company’s new CEO, effective May 1, 2020 succeeding the outgoing John Legere.
Sievert currently serves as the COO and a board director but will now assume the CEO role from John Legere after the conclusion of Legere’s current contract. Legere will remain a member of the board.
Chairman of the board at T-Mobile US Tim Höttges said: “John Legere has had an enormously successful run as CEO.
“As the architect of the Un-carrier strategy and the company’s complete transformation, John has put T-Mobile US in an incredibly strong position.
“I have the highest respect for his performance as a manager and as a friend, I am very grateful to him for the time together.”
Sievert will lead all of T-Mobile marketing and product groups, all retail, sales and consumer support groups for all of T-Mobile’s segments and brands, among other responsibilities.
Legere added: “I hired Mike in 2012 and I have great confidence in him. I have mentored him as he took on increasingly broad responsibilities, and he is absolutely the right choice as T-Mobile’s next CEO.”
