T-Mobile shuffles execs, Humm officially CEO

T-Mobile USA today said Philipp Humm (pictured) is now officially its president and chief executive officer, completing a transition that began when Robert Dotson announced his resignation in May.

The switch is happening sooner than planned. It was originally going to happen in February, but Humm’s been working with Dotson for months on the transition.

Rene Obermann, chief executive of parent company Deutsche Telekom, said in the release that Humm and Dotson “have chosen the right timing for this change.”

Humm was formerly chief executive of T-Mobile Deutschland where he introduced the iPhone in Germany in 2007.

Earlier worked for Amazon.com, McKinsey & Co. and Procter & Gamble.

Dotson is moving to vice chairman of the T-Mobile USA board of directors.

Here’s the company’s executive leadership team, reporting to Humm:

– Cole Brodman, chief marketing officer, T-Mobile USA

– Jim Alling, chief operations officer, T-Mobile USA

– Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA

– Brian Kirkpatrick, chief financial officer, T-Mobile USA

– Larry Myers, chief people officer, T-Mobile USA

– Dave Miller, general counsel and chief legal officer, T-Mobile USA

– Peter Ewens, chief strategy officer, T-Mobile USA
