Re: Rogers CEO is stepping down

Actually Nadir Mohamed has been very sucessful, for a guy who does very little compared to other CEOs. If you look at revenue when he started and now, he's even beat Ted Rogers. So the company and I'm sure the investors are happy with him.

However, Rogers and Bell's game of lets suck Canadians out of their wallets is starting to nose dive because they've both become greedy in the face of little to no competition so now they're scrambling to save their client base. This is not unique to Rogers but more apparent.

The thing that Rogers does have is an extensive coax-fibre network, Bell is slower to roll out new service because they have to build it even further in the home so if Rogers were really trying to compete, they would kill off Bell in 5 years.

Yup. The shame of it all is that if Rogers was really aggressive, it would force Bell into deploying FTTN in Ontario like they are in Quebec, as Rogers' network is capable of a whole lot more than they are using it for now. Rogers' own complacency is what is leading to the crap we have now in Ontario.

success should not be measured by profits, it should be measured by a mixture of profits, good customer service, good product offerings and innovation. simply measuring profits alone is a sign of desperation

His main job was to offshore and do other general restructuring and he served his purpose.

Now that they've done some good cost containment they're going to bring someone in to try and push their media play harder. Most of these guys see the writing on the wall, that the cable business doesn't have many good years left in it.

Unless they want to become a utility (which is a dirty word in high growth investments) they need to switch gears in a hurry.
