Bellevue, WA -- T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced the completion of its senior leadership transition by confirming Philipp Humm as president and chief executive officer. Humm succeeds Robert Dotson, former president and CEO, who moves to vice chairman of the T-Mobile USA Board. The company also re-aligned several executive leadership roles, with all transitions effective Nov. 1, 2010. Cole Brodman, formerly T-Mobile’s chief technology officer, steps into the role of chief marketing officer. Neville Ray, formerly T-Mobile’s chief network officer, becomes chief technology officer for the company.

“T-Mobile has grown into a strong consumer brand known for great value and recognized as a leader in customer service,” Humm said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to lead T-Mobile toward future growth and plan to continually improve the way we serve our customers.”

René Obermann, CEO of Deutsche Telekom, said, “Philipp and Robert have chosen the right timing for this change. This move allows the new team to prepare a strong foundation for 2011 and forward.
