John Legere Named as CEO of T-Mobile USA

Deutsche Telekom has named John Legere, a 32-year veteran of the U.S. and global telecommunications and technology industries, Chief Executive Officer of its T-Mobile USA business unit, effective September 22, 2012, 

Some might find the T-Mobile choice a bit puzzling, given Legere's prior stewardship of Global Crossing. Some might have expected an executive with deeper experience in mobility, for example. 

Others might note that Legere has experience with enterprise and computing device aspects of the business. Some might point to experience with mergers and acquisitions, in a business rife with competition, as well. 

If you share the opinion that the top end of the U.S. mobile business simply has too many competitors, then both T-Mobile USA and Sprint must be counted as among firms that "must" merge or sell, ultimately.
