Domineering Chief Architect understood to be moving on; ironically, next stop rumoured to be IT-land. (Departure not yet officially confirmed, but follows months of rumours.) Updated to include coverage of Neil McRae’s own chronicle of his time and achievements at BT.

  • Harbinger, presumably, of wider technology units reorg.

  • Openreach, led by tech-savvy insider Clive Selley, quietly does its own converged thing to show how it can be done; delivering quarterly on transformational success BT promises for the whole Group.
