BT Security head Mark Hughes quits after 16 years
Mark Hughes, chief executive of BT Security, has unexpectedly quit the company to take up a senior role at another business. Mr Hughes, who joined BT in 2002, is the latest in a series of departures from among the company's old guard - from board members to senior executives - over the past two years. Mr Hughes has been in charge of BT's entire security operation since 2013 when the company merged various businesses, including its cyber security operations, its physical security and the resilience of the national telecoms infrastructure, into one division. BT said that it intended to double the size of its security business and exceed the 11 per cent annual growth rate predicted for the wider security market in the coming years. "After 16 years, Mark Hughes has decided to leave BT and take up a position with another company. He will stay on for the time being to ensure a smooth transition to his successor. We wish Mark every success in his future career," it said.
