Jericho Chambers

The ex-CEO of BT spent an hour in conversation with Jericho Partner Matthew Gwyther discussing:- his leadership style and methods as CEO; his tussles with OFCOM; why doing business in Italy is so tricky; the highs and lows of running one of the FTSE 100’s most prominent companies; and the pressures on his family. He also reveals why he didn’t fancy running the Premier League, whether Huawei is a security risk to our nation and how he deals at every dinner party he attends about the shortcomings of diners’ broadband speeds. And why he thinks the intense heat surrounding FTSE CEO pay may lead more talent into the cooler but more lucrative shadows of private equity: ” I didn’t think I was particularly well paid. I sat towards the bottom end of the [pay] range.”
