Two senior executives have left telecommunications giant O2 as part of an ongoing reshuffle at the Telefónica-owned firm.

David Plumb has stepped down after serving as Chief Digital Officer since 2013, having worked for Telefónica O2 since 2005, when he was appointed as Head of Indirect Partners & Business Mobilisation.

Plumb then assumed the position of Head of SME Sales in 2008 - a post he held for nearly three years - before becoming General Manager of Enterprise business.
