Tesco UK finance director Eamonn O’Hare has left to join Virgin Media as chief financial officer.

O’Hare had been at Tesco for around four years. Prior to that, he was at Energis and played a key role in turning around the business. He also spent ten years with PepsiCo in a series of international finance and general management positions.

Virgin Media chief executive Neil Berkett said: “As well as an understanding of the UK telecoms sector, Eamonn brings with him an impressive combination of financial and operational expertise, a proven track record of driving change in large consumer-focused companies and extensive capital markets experience. I’m delighted to welcome someone of his pedigree to our senior management team.”
