Rogers CEO to step down next year, search begins for a successor

Rogers CEO Nadir Mohamed took over for company founder Ted Rogers in the Canadian communications company's top post back in March of 2009, and today announced he will step down in January 2014. The news comes along with Rogers fourth quarter earnings announcement, where it noted 58,000 net subscriber additions for wireless and 7,000 for cable. Milestones achieved in the last year include the rollout of NextBox 2.0 features for cable TV viewers and LTE coverage it says reaches 60 percent of Canadians. Meanwhile Mohamed leaves able to note the company becoming Canada's largest wireless carrier during his leadership. We don't know yet who will step up in his place, but the press release mentioned Rogers family members Edward and Melinda -- currently serving as a Deputy Chairman and Senior VP, respectively -- will not submit their names for candidacy. We have submitted the names of Engadget mobile editors (and native Canadians) Myriam Joire and Sean Cooper for consideration, but have yet to hear back from the search committee.
