Deutsche Telekom’s CEO Rene Obermann is continuing the “message” from the Deutsche Telekom/T-Mobile USA powers that be by telling T-Mobile USA employees they are “working with all of you on a plan to grow the business.” What that plan is exactly…is anyones guess and we do have a lot guesses. Employees are already expressing their belief to me that this statement reads like smoke and mirrors as they have doubts about Deutsche Telekom’s real-world commitment to their USA branch. If Rene Obermann really wants to make sure employees are on board, he’ll need actions, they tend to speak louder than words.
Read the full statement and tell us what you think.
Following the termination of our agreement with AT&T regarding the sale of T-Mobile USA, I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to each and every one of you.
I know that the past few months have been especially challenging, however you have persevered under trying and uncertain circumstances to remain focused and move T-Mobile USA forward. I have immense respect for that.
Special mention and thanks must also go to Philipp Humm for his inspirational leadership. He personifies the dedication, loyalty and fighting spirit in each one of you.
I know that Deutsche Telekom can continue to rely on your commitment and support. I look forward to working with all of you on a plan to grow the business. Please be assured of my full support; you are a great team.
May I wish you a wonderful festive season and a prosperous new year.
CEO of Deutsche Telekom
