Kevin Russell is planning a return to Australia with his family after four and a half years in the top job at Three UK.
Dyson joined Three UK as Chief Financial Officer in 2006 from Three Group’s Australian business, now Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA), where he was also CFO. Prior to that, he worked in the Group’s Swedish business as Deputy CFO. He became COO of Three UK in 2009. Working closely with Russell for the past nine years, first in Australia and then in the UK, he has played a pivotal role in turning Three UK’s business around. He has supported Russell in Three UK’s transformation into the leading provider of data services for the rapidly growing mobile broadband and smartphone markets.
Russell said: “This is a good succession plan for Three UK. Dave has a great track record working across Hutchison’s 3G businesses. He has been a key member of my team and I have enjoyed working with him immensely.”
Russell became CEO of Three UK in 2007. During his time in the UK , he focused on re-structuring the business and moving it into profit on a sustainable basis, a goal reached during 2010. Three UK is now growing strongly based on the strength of its high speed data network rated number one for smartphones and mobile broadband by UK consumers.
Dyson said: “Kevin has put a tremendous amount of energy into putting our UK business on a sound footing. His clear and decisive leadership has had a significant impact at Three and throughout the mobile communications sector. I know everyone at Three will join me in thanking him for all he has done to put our business firmly and positively on the map. We are in a very strong position and I am looking forward to building on the growth we are now seeing."
Kevin and his family are moving back to their home in Australia. He is planning to take a six month sabbatical from work in order to spend time with his family as they fold back in to Australian life.
