CFO role at BT becomes vacant, as Lalani moves to head up global services division

Hanif
Lalani
has been appointed chief executive of BT’s Global Services division.

Lalani replaces François Barrault, who has resigned. The move opens up a
vacancy for a new group FD at BT.

Ian Livingston, chief executive of BT, said: ‘BT Global Services, under
François’s leadership, has established itself as a world leader in providing
networked IT services, helping customers in more than 170 countries make the
most of globalisation.

‘BT Global Services has won many key accounts with major global corporations
around the world and delivered much improved customer service. Continuing strong
revenue growth shows the tremendous potential of this market, and demonstrates
how important the services we provide are to our customers around the world.

‘I would like to thank François, and wish him well for the future.

‘Hanif will build on these foundations, and take Global Services to the next
stage of its development, delivering improved profitability, margins and return
on capital for the group and outstanding service for our customers’.

Lalani said: ‘BT Global Services, led by François, has achieved recognition
around the world for the quality of the services it delivers, and will remain an
engine of growth for the group. I am committed to improving profitability and
returns for the division while continuing to win new business. I am extremely
proud of BT’s global presence, and of the contribution we are making to the
countries in which we work.’

Ray Leclerq, the current CFO of Openreach, has been appointed CFO at BT
Global Services. BT said it would make an announcement about the group FD
vacancy in due course.
