Jon Florsheim has quit as Chief Commercial Officer of eir, the Ireland-based operator has revealed.

The company has also announced the appointment of a new Chief Information and Technology Officer.

Florsheim, who leaves after three years with the operator, has decided to return to the UK later this year for personal reasons, eir said.

He initially oversaw eir’s fixed line consumer business, including the newly launched eir Vision TV platform, before he was appointed as CCO two years ago.

Among his credits, eir said he had helped to deliver “an inflection point on revenue and EBITDA in the past financial year, following several years of significant declines”.

In its most recent financial results, for the three months to December 2016, revenues flatlined at €330 million, but EBITDA rose four percent to €121 million.

Richard Moat, eir CEO, said: "I want to thank Jon for the significant contribution he has made to the business over the past three years.

“He has led a range of key initiatives that have shaped the strategic direction of the business, and his drive and energy delivered improved performance and operational milestones.”

Meanwhile, Paolo Perfetti has been appointed as eir’s new CITO.

The former Telecom Argentina and Tiscali exec, starts next month.

Moat said: "Paolo brings a wealth of IT and network experience, and I am delighted that he is joining us.

“He has successfully translated complex network and IT infrastructure into improved customer experience and real competitive advantage for the businesses where he has worked."
