TDS Boss Harriott Changes his Mind over Resignation

TDS Chief Executive, Steve Harriott, has withdrawn his resignation in a shock decision just days before he was due to take up the position of Chief Executive for housing association, CDS Co-operatives. Harriott, who decided to move on earlier this year after two very successful years at the TDS, has not given a statement explaining his decision, however a statement given by CDS Co-operatives mentioned his decision to remain at TDS was related to personal reasons.

The statement also said “The board will now be putting other actions and arrangements for the management of the society in place and offers Mr Harriott best wishes for the future.”

Nick Hankey, the man who was to become acting chief executive, and very probably the permanent chief executive in the future, will now take up the role of deputy chief executive to Harriott.

Chairman of the TDS, Martin Partington, commented on the decision saying, “The last two years have seen an astonishing change in fortunes for TDS and its customers and we are therefore delighted that Steve is to continue in his role as chief executive.

“There are great opportunities and challenges ahead and Steve has already proved he can rise to such challenges. We look forward to a bright future under his leadership.”
