Nadir Mohamed has been promoted to president/CEO of Rogers Communications, the Canadian conglomerate that encompasses wireless, cable TV and radio divisions, filling the chasm created when Rogers founder/president/CEO Ted Rogers passed away. Mohamed, who has a quarter-century of experience in the communications business, has been president/COO of Rogers' Communications Division since May 2005, overseeing the wireless and cable TV aspects of the company. He's been with Rogers since August 2000 and has also previously served as president/CEO of Rogers Wireless.
"Nadir was the unanimous choice of our Board of Directors to succeed Ted as RCI's president and CEO," said chairman Alan Horn. "He is a highly regarded, principled telecom executive who has the demonstrated ability to build and lead strong teams and to consistently deliver strong results. Over the past eight years Nadir has earned the respect of our Board, our employees and the investment community. The board believes Nadir's skills, experience, track record and firm understanding of the industry uniquely position him to lead Rogers through the next chapter in its history. We all congratulate Nadir and look forward to working with him in his expanded leadership role."
"To succeed a visionary business titan like Ted Rogers and to lead a company that has an asset mix as unique and powerful as Rogers' is a rare and exciting opportunity," said Mohamed. "We have the brand, the technology platforms, the financial strength and tremendously talented employees to continue this company's success well into the future."
