He will succeed Eamonn O’Hare, who has decided to leave the company to pursue other opportunities.
Dunn, who will report to Virgin Media’s incoming CEO Tom Mockridge, has held several management positions with Liberty Global over the last 13 years including MD, UPC Ireland for five years and CFO of Liberty’s European cable division.
Baptiest Coopmand, former member of the board at KPN, will meanwhile become the MD of UPC Netherlands.
He has previously held several international management roles and was MD of KPN Netherlands and MD of KPN Consumer Markets from 2006 to 2012.
In his new position, he will report to Diederik Karsten, executive VP of Liberty Global’s European Broadband Operations.
Commenting on the appointments, Mike Fries, president and CEO of Liberty Global, said: “Robert is the ideal choice for the CFO position given his deep understanding of our business following important leadership roles in the Netherlands and Ireland over the last 13 years, which make him uniquely qualified to help steer Virgin Media during its next phase of growth. I would also like to acknowledge the significant contribution made by Eamonn O’Hare, an outstanding executive who played a central role in the recent success of Virgin Media. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
Diederik Karsten, EVP of Liberty Global’s European Broadband Operations, said: “We are excited to see Baptiest join the company as he brings a wealth of experience to bear, having held leadership roles at KPN’s consumer division for both fixed and mobile services. He also oversaw major quality and service improvements across all of KPN’s business divisions. This followed a 17 year career at Unilever where he built a solid track record of success, holding senior management positions in a number of highly competitive markets.”
