Samantha Lloyd, chief information officer of Liberty Global-backed Belgian cable operator Telenet is to leave the company at the end of July.
Lloyd will take on the role of chief data and information officer at a FTSE100 company based in the UK. Telenet said it will not refill the position.
Under Lloyd’s leadership, Telenet created a new structure for its IT department following the acquisitions of BASE and SFR and started developing and implementing a new IT platform.
Micha Berger, Telenet’s CTO will work with Lloyd over the next few months to bring together both the IT and technology and innovation teams and transition the combined technology department’s transition into a new structure
John Porter, CEO of Telenet said: “Sam Lloyd’s departure didn’t come as a surprise. We knew from the start that Sam would not settle permanently in Belgium, because her family lives in the United Kingdom. Over the past three and a half years, Sam played an important role as CIO, by further digitizing Telenet and preparing the company for the future through the development of a new IT system. In the months to come, Sam will concentrate on finalizing a number of important strategic IT projects. I would already like to thank her for all the efforts, her inspiring ideas and her tremendous achievements of the past few years.”
