9 May 2013

Eircom Group’s Network division has a new managing director, John Shine, who comes to the telecoms company from electricity utility ESB. He begins his new job on 1 August.

At ESB, Shine served as deputy chief executive, as well as managing director of Network, where he oversaw a €6bn network upgrade.

Herb Hribar, CEO of eircom Group, said he is delighted Shine is joining the company.

“He brings a wealth of network experience and joins Eircom at an exciting time as we launch our next-generation fibre network, rollout our 4G mobile service and introduce our ‘quad play’ and television service,” Hribar said.

Eircom will also see the departure of Brendan Lynch, managing director of Group Technology, in August.

Lynch originally joined Meteor Mobile Communications in 2007. During the past six years, he led the rollout of the 3G mobile network and the network integration across Eircom’s fixed and mobile platforms.
