If you’re a Sprint customer about to be gobbled up by T-Mobile, chances are pretty high at the moment that you’re not going to be getting the CEO who has been the public face of T-Mobile for the past seven years.
Mike Sievert, the current president and COO of T-Mobile will be stepping up, so probably there is not going to be a huge course correction in where the merger is hopefully headed toward. bio
Legere will remain through April 30, 2020 in an attempt to ensure a smooth transition, but realistically even with government approval chances are Sprint’s not going to be part of that.
The former T-Mobile CEO is expected to go and tackle WeWork, which is backed by Softbank, who effectively owns Sprint and T-Mobile at this point.
In the meantime, Sprint and T-Mobile users can argue that Magenta is not a color, and hope we’re not in the worst possible merger universe.[T-Mobile newsroom]
