NTT Appoints New Global CEO

NTT has announced that Abhijit Dubey will succeed Jason Goodall as Global Chief Executive Officer. Dubey takes the role following over 20 years with global advisory firm McKinsey & Company.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Abhijit to the NTT family in 2021 to lead the next generation of our business. He shares our passion for the technology industry and the role that technology can play in helping make the world a better place,” says Jason Goodall, current Global CEO for NTT.

“He brings many years’ experience of our industry and context, as well as a strong track record in delivering high performance and profitability in organizations having advised clients on a range of strategic, operational, and go-to-market challenges. I am confident that we have solid foundations in place following our successful integration last year and am delighted to work with Abhijit in the first half of next year to ensure a smooth handover.”

Dubey will join NTT in early February and formally step into his new role on 1 April 2021. He will be based at NTT’s headquarters in London.

Following a three month handover period, Jason Goodall will retire from his executive role on 30 June 2021 and will remain as a Board Director for NTT, and Dimension Data, as well as act as a strategic advisor for the NTT Venture Capital business.

Tsunehisa Okuno, NTT Chairman, says “I’d like to thank Jason for his service and commitment to our business for over 23 years and look forward to welcoming and working with Abhijit as he joins us in 2021.”
