Sunday Times discloses details of boardroom rows over Halford and Sarin

Sir Christopher Gent opposed the appointment of Andy Halford as the new
finance director of Vodafone, The Sunday Times reported this weekend.

Sir Christopher, the company’s former chief executive and now life president,
wanted to put forward his own candidate for the job, in a row seemingly over the
future direction of the company.

Gent also wanted Arun Sarin, his successor as chief executive, out, the
report said.

Halford has had a difficult time so far as Vodafone’s finance chief, being
forced to disclose an imminent £5bn tax bill last year, and writing down £28bn
of goodwill relating to the Mannesman transaction last week.
