Six months into the job, Clearwire Chief Executive Bill Morrow is changing the company’s executive lineup.
The Kirkland wireless broadband company today announced that it hired Erik Prusch, former chief executive of Borland and VP of Intuit’s Turbo Tax group, as chief financial officer.
It also hired Teresa Elder as president of strategic partnerships. Elder was formerly chief executive of Vodafone Ireland, a group Morrow led as CEO of Vodafone Europe in 2006.
Prusch is taking the job of CFO David Sach, who “will leave the company to pursue new opportunities,” the company said in the release.
Also leaving is chief strategy officer, Scott Richardson, who will continue to serve as a “strategic adviser.”
Under the current organization, Morrow will oversee strategy for the company, and product development will be overseen by Chief Commercial Officer Mike Sievert, a former Microsoft Windows marketing boss.
Today’s release noted the rest of Clearwire’s executive leadership team reporting to Morrow is unchanged. It includes Sievert; CTO John Saw; EVP for strategy, policy and external affairs R. Gerard Salemme; General Counsel Broady Hodder; CIO Kevin Hart; SVP of corporate development Scott Hopper; Chief People Officer Laurent Bentitou; and international President Barry West.
