The operator has also rejigged four of its business units.

The Small Business segment will be integrated into the Consumer division and will be led by Jon Florsheim, who has been appointed as Chief Commercial Officer.

Florsheim had led the Consumer business unit since 2014.

Finally, eir has brought its network and wholesale divisions together in a unit called open eir.

Carolan Lennon has been appointed to the newly created role of Managing Director open eir.

Moat said: “The decision to realign the Small Business segment with our Consumer segment allows us to put greater focus on our customers, improve our customer service, simplify our structures and consolidate two segments with clear synergies.

“We are bringing together our Wholesale and Network divisions and remain focused on delivering high-speed broadband and data services across rural Ireland.

“As demand for these new services continues to grow, the transition from legacy networks towards our next generation networks will accelerate.”
