Cable & Wireless has named Graham Wallace, head of Granada Restaurants and Services, as chief executive of Cable & Wireless Communications, its new joint venture with the cable industry.
The new unit will offer integrated telecomms, information and entertainment services to businesses and residential customers. It was formed last October between C&W subsidiary Mercury, Nynex Cablecomms, Bell Cablemedia and Videotron.
Wallace has a long background in company mergers. He was closely involved in the merger of BSB and Sky and also helped to consolidate Granada?s acquisition of the Forte chain of leisure organisations. Richard Brown, chief executive of Cable & Wireless, will be chairman of the new company.
