Miles Makes Leap to Big Pond
Managing Director of Vodafone NZ, Tim Miles, is to head the $12 billion UK branch from April 2005. According to the NZ Herald, Vodafone went from 1.8 million mobile subscribers in late 2001 to take the market lead from Telecom with 1.83 million at the end of 2004. Miles sees his new job as a reflection of Vodafone NZ and what the whole business has achieved. It also underlines the fact we are working in a truly global business with a readily available pool of resource and talent. Vodafone UK has 15 million customers.
