Veenod Kurup has led the Telenet IT department since May 2013. Veenod will be sharing his experience with Liberty Global, where he will concentrate on the IT strategy of the European offices as MD and CIO.
“I’d like to thank Veenod for his help in making our IT department even more professional. His affinity with telecommunication, his vast technological knowledge, strategic vision, and strong leadership qualities have made him an outstanding CIO,” said John Porter, CEO of Telenet.
“At the same time, we welcome Sam Lloyd, whose strong management skills and experience at Virgin Media will make her a worthy successor. Her arrival means that from now on, the senior leadership team will count as much women as men, and that will contribute to diversity within our company.”
