New figures take on key roles at KCOM

Neil Bartholomew has become MD of KCOM retail after John Rooney left the job at the end of the month to take up new opportunities in his native Ireland.

Neil has been KCOM Retail’s Head of Sales and Marketing since 2021, and has more than 20 years’ experience in the telecommunications and broadband industry including time at Virgin Media where, as Executive Director of Customer Operations,  he led its customer operations teams across all consumer facing areas of sales, care, field service and installs including in their network expansion areas.

KCOM has also announced that Tim Shaw, MD of the business’s Wholesale & Networks division, has agreed to become KCOM’s new Chief Executive Officer. He will also take on his new CEO responsibilities this month.

During his two years at the Hull-based broadband provider, John Rooney oversaw the transformation of KCOM Retail as it has established itself in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire and outside of its traditional Hull heartlands.
