BT Retail general counsel Gordon Moir has left the company after 10 years to join the Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) as company secretary.
Moir’s departure follows that of BT’s former general counsel of global services and commercial director Tim Cowen, who left the telecoms giant in June after 18 years to set up cross-industry group Open Computing Alliance.
During his time at BT Moir used his knowledge of regulatory and competition law to help create telecoms regulations in New Zealand.
Moir’s team was later tasked with creating the complex framework for BT Openreach in the UK, a subsidiary that maintains and operates the phone and internet connections on behalf of some 450 internet service providers.
BT group general counsel Anne Fletcher said: “We’re sorry to see Gordon leave. His new opportunity means that he can return to Scotland, spend more time with his family and pursue an exciting new career opportunity.”
In his new role at the GHA Moir will look after the governance, compliance and secretariat at the association, as well as legal and contractual matters on projects such as the transfer of housing association homes to local organisations.
A selection process is currently underway to find a replacement for Moir at BT, which may reorganise its legal team.
