(Toronto) Rogers Communications has appointed Tony Staffery as Permanent President and CEO, with immediate effect.
Mr Staffieri has been interim CEO since November 16. Rogers announced that its board has begun the process of finding a permanent CEO.
Board Chairman Edward Rogers said the appointment put the company in a strong position as Shaw prepares to consolidate communications in the first half of 2022.
Former CFO Tony Staffery is a member of the board of directors, replacing Joe Natale, who left the company in November amid family strife between Edward Rogers, his mother and two sisters.
A British Columbia Supreme Court judge has finally sided with Edward Rogers and replaced five directors who despised his attempts to make unilateral changes in the company.
Rogers said, “The board has full confidence in Tony’s ability to lead Rogers as we move forward.”
“I focus on creating shareholder value with better implementation and completion of the Shaw transaction to build a strong organization focused on providing exceptional customer service and outstanding networks in Canada,” Mr. Staffieri said in a press release.
