Mockridge for Telecom Italia?

March 30, 2016

By Chris Forrester

Bloomberg is headlining that Virgin Media’s CEO Tom Mockridge is one of the candidates in line for the CEO position at Telecom Italia, replacing Marco Patuano.

Mockridge has run Virgin Media since June 2013 and this appointment followed a period running Sky Italia as its chief executive.

Indeed, his position at Sky Italia came about following his influence in the 2002 merger between Stream TV and Tele+ in Italy, which became Sky Italia.

Mockridge’s wife is an Italian.
