Richard Moat, ex-head of Orange Romania, is understood to be the future MD of T-Mobile UK, Mobile Today writes on Monday. The source says that the identity of T-Mobile UK's future boss is held secret with even top managers kept in the dark about it.

T-Mobile UK chief executive Jim Hyde left the company last week to return to the US.

Orange Romania announced last week that its executive head Richard Moat decided for personal reasons to leave the company as well as France Telecom and that commercial officer Thierry Millet would take over the job for an interim period.
