Joe Natale is the new CEO of Rogers Communications

rogersAs of April 19, Rogers is welcoming Joe Natale as its new CEO. According to MobileSyrup, this follows the dismissal of Guy Laurence from the role last year, when Natale could not take over due to his non-complete contract with Telus. Although that contract was not set to expire until July, Rogers said in a statement that it has reached “a confidential agreement” with Telus “to secure his early arrival.”

“I’m really excited to join the Rogers team,” said Natale in a statement sent to MobileSyrup. “The history of the company, the incredible mix of assets, and the growth potential are second to none.”

Rogers Communications currently has over ten million wireless subscribers in Canada, on top of its other businesses such as cable, internet, publishing, and entertainment. It also owns Canada’s sole Major League Baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays.
