Back in the heat of summer, T-Mobile USA‘s then CEO Philipp Humm resigned to take up the mantle at Vodafone. In the interim, former COO Jim Alling stepped up to keep the chair warm while a permanent replacement was found. Today we learn that John Legere, former CEO of Global Crossing, will relieve Alling of those duties, and fill the top spot full-time. With 32 years experience in the industry, Legere also spent time at Dell as president of European, Middle East and African operations. For now, his first task will likely be leading the firm’s LTE deployment, and trying to win some of the faithful back. Head past the break for the full PR and the new CEO’s first video address to employees.
