BT added that Sherman will join the group on 1 May 2018 from management consulting and business strategy firm Boston Consulting Group, where he has spent the last 11 years leading its Technology, Media and Telecommunications practice in the United States.

The move is Patterson’s latest hire to his executive committee, with the former boss of water regulator Ofwat, Cathryn Ross having joined as BT’s Director of Regulatory Affairs in January and Sabine Chalmers, a former Anheuser-Busch InBev executive, to join as General Counsel in April 2018.

Patterson commented: “I’m delighted Mike has decided to join BT and become part of my executive team. He will be a fantastic addition who will help us to take our strategy, strategic planning and transformation plans to the next level.”

Michael Sherman added: “BT is in a great position. It’s a world class provider of digital services to multinationals and the UK’s leading provider of broadband and mobile.

“I’m excited to be able to help drive forward the strategy that Gavin and his team are building and bring further insight and focus.”
