Deutsche Telekom CEO Rene Obermann Announces He Will Step Down Next Year

In a move that might make most of you yawn and move on, Deutsche Telekom CEO Rene Obermann has announced he will step down from the T-Mobile USA parent company next year. Obermann requested that the termination date for his contract be December 31st of 2013, allowing plenty of time for his successor, current Deutsche Telekom CFO Timotheus Hottges to step into the role.

There’s no sign how or if this move will affect the Deutsche Telekom outlook on the future and its investment level in their US branch, but it’s of worthy note when there is a change in power at the highest levels.┬áSo, consider this an FYI and a worthy footnote as T-Mobile USA moves to seal its merger with MetroPCS.
