Virgin Media has named Tesco finance director Eamonn O’Hare as its new CFO. O’Hare will join the cabler in November after four years with the UK supermarket chain. He replaces Jerry Elliot who left the company in May, citing family health reasons, after just five months in post.
O’Hare was involved in the 2002 debt restructuring of the telecommunications provider Energis and was a part of the management team that took the company to its first operating profit. Before Energis O’Hare spent ten years with PepsiCo in a series of management positions.
