BT Exec Exit
The very personable Matt Beal rode the 21CN promotion wave along with super-tall Scotsman Paul Reynolds, and as a member of the carrier's CTO office, gave a number of presentations highlighting the planned deployment of the controversial carrier Ethernet technology PBT in BT's next-generation network. (See Reynolds Leaving BT to Run TNZ.)
But with PBT's demise at BT still fresh, Beal, who is believed to have been on a rolling contract at BT, has now followed Reynolds, and a number of other big names, out the carrier's exit door. (See PBT Sidelined at BT, Nortel: There's More to PBT Than BT, and Verwaayen Set to Leave BT.)
BT's press office says that after five years at the British operator, Beal left about a month ago, having decided to return to the U.S. with his young family.
As a reminder, here's Beal in video action.
