BT Forms Unit to Focus on Digital Growth

BT has created a new unit to be led by former Bharti Airtel executive Harmeen Mehta, as the company looks to boost its digital services offering.

In its statement, BT said it was splitting its core technology business with a new digital unit running separately from its network technology division. The digital unit will focus on developing and delivering products and services in key areas including healthcare and data. It will also look to tap into new growth areas including cloud, machine learning and AI.

Mehta, who served as CIO at Bharti Airtel group, left that position last week. She will become BT’s Chief Digital and Innovation Officer on March 1, reporting directly to CEO Philip Jansen. BT seeks to benefit from her 24 years’ experience around digital, engineering IT and innovation transformation.
