BT group general counsel Anne Fletcher has stepped down, with former Misys general counsel Daniel Fitz poised to take over her role.
Fletcher, who was with the company for 24 years, the last nine as legal chief, has decided to leave the company. A spokesperson did not confirm the reasons for Fletcher’s departure.
Fitz was previously general counsel at both Misys and Cable & Wireless and will join BT at the end of March.
He was at technology firm Misys as executive vice president, general counsel and UK company secretary for six years from 2003-09. Prior to that he filled the group general counsel and director of legal UK services positions at Cable & Wireless.
This comes after BT retail general counsel Gordon Moir left the telecoms company for a position at Glasgow Housing Association, while general counsel of global services and commercial director Tim Cowen also exited, to set up Open Computing Alliance (2 November 2009).
