Sprint makes it official: Marcelo Claure will replace Dan Hesse as CEO

Gigaom

Sprint(s s) confirmed on Wednesday that Dan Hesse, its CEO of the last seven years, is departing effective August 11. The board named Brightstar CEO and co-founder Marcelo Claure as his replacement. The new CEO will take over Sprint as it tackles the U.S. mobile network alone, as Sprint is giving up on its T-Mobile ambitions for now.

Sprint didn’t state any reason for the move, but the announcement has the feeling of a deliberate changing of the guard. Claure was named CEO, not interim or acting CEO, and it’s likely he’s been groomed for the new role since he joined the board in January.
