T-Mobile CFO Braxton Carter will retire July 1, Peter Osvaldik named as successor


Another T-Mobile executive will soon exit the company.

T-Mobile confirmed today that CFO Braxton Carter will retire on July 1, 2020. He won’t be completely done with T-Mo after that date, though, because he’ll be sticking with T-Mobile in a strategic advisory role for 3 months to ensure the transition to his successor goes smoothly. T-Mo then has the option to keep him as an advisor for another 3 months through December 31, 2020.

We learned last year that Carter would be retiring from T-Mobile with his last date being either December 31, 2019, 20 days after the combined T-Mobile-Sprint’s first quarterly filing, or 20 days after the merger was called off. Then earlier this year, it was announced that his contract had been extended through July 1, 2020 to help the transition to new CEO Mike Sievert.

Now it looks like Carter will be retiring from his position in 2 weeks. He’s been with MetroPCS and T-Mobile for more than 19 years, starting his career at Metro and then playing a role in the merger of T-Mobile and MetroPCS in 2013. He was named as an executive vice president and CFO for T-Mobile in May 2013.

Following Carter as T-Mobile’s new CFO will be Peter Osvaldik. He’s been working at T-Mobile since 2016, starting out as vice president of External Reporting and Technical Accounting. Osvaldik is currently a senior vice president as well as Finance and Chief Accounting Officer for T-Mobile.

    All the execs are grabbing their merger bonus money and running.

      Sounds like that is part of it, I just wonder how much Deutsche telekom has to do with this?

    First Legere, then Carter. Interesting. I guess Sievert is getting his people in place….

    You have what is historically known as the worst management team and customer care from Sprint. You have TMo who really isn’t that much better than Sprint (and in SF TMo is terrible and Sprint is better now) but at least SOME of their staff are decent and turned TMo from nothing to something slightly better than it was. And you got a mega merger and everyone at TMo is jumping ship rather than stay to ensure the integration happens without the management input of anyone from Sprint…so nothing gets f’ed up more than it already has been… I mean TMo hired John Saw, JOHN SAW…The man who literally ruined WiMAX on both Clearwire and Sprint, kinda botched Network Vision deployment which could have corrected all his mistakes but insgead his actions nearly bankrupted Sprint like he did Clearwire – I cant help but fear what is going to happen with TMo. Two ways, it will either be meh like they always have or it will turn into the next Sprint with consumer unfriendly policies (we already see this with forced plan change to Magenta if you want a deal on a device, or add one more line no one wants or needs) and of course we already see how they respond on Twitter, standard boiler plate responses EXACTLY using the same words Sprint does – basically “we want to make sure youre connected” but never resolving anything and in DM give you conflicting information abd you end up a$$ed out. Yeah I see this becoming worse.

    Wow, all the people leaving that led Tmobile from nothing to something, makes me wonder why Deutsche telekom ain’t trying to keep the people around? First John and now Braxton? They both loved the brand Tmobile.
